Default Wow how did that still work

I had an HMV Record Player in for repair today, the customer said the volume had dropped off. I tried it and it was a bit low but the quality sounded OK but look what I found when I opened it.
A 400 Microfarad Callins with the top off so might have been a bit dried out I am amazed it still worked, it was the speaker coupling cap on the output. Photos included for amusement
