Absolutely!

I would add that capacitor and see what happens.

Crystals usually go down with age, not up, but it's not impossible for them to rise.

You want one of those Chinese crystal testers that you can get in kit form for a fiver or so from the usual place. I was thinking of getting one a month or so back and when I mentioned it to a CB operator who had boxed up a load of old electronic bits and pieces for me to go and collect, he happened to mention that he'd built one and it didn't do what he wanted it to do, so he'd chucked it in one of the boxes of bits for me - it's a wonderful little thing and I'm still unsure why it didn't work for him or why he didn't want it after going to the trouble of building it up.
