Default Ferguson - Thorn 980

I bought this set at retrotech last Sunday. The seller did say it was working but I always buy on the assumption itís not.
Itís in excellent condition apart from a small scratch on the screen.
The seller was right it did work . I only powered it up for a few mins . The only thing I have done is replaced a Callens Cap and the mains filter cap. I think it might be prudent to replace all the blue doublers as a few are split.
It appears totally original apart from a crack on the PC board thatís been repaired.
I was lucky as I already had the service manual.
Does anyone recommend any other repairs or upgrades or just leave it at that . Andy
