Question Bush VHF61 Quiet on VHF

Some time ago I overhauled a Bush VHF61, replacing the main Reservoir/Smoothing Capacitor, other electrolytics and 'waxies', plus some out of tolerance resistors. The Radio now works fine, except that the volume control on FM needs to be set between half & 3/4 max. for reasonable listening level in a quiet room, whereas on AM a setting about 1/4 above minimum is plenty. The internal FM aerial is being used(I don't have an outside VHF Aerial). The EABC80, EF89 & ECC85 have all been replaced, but I have NOT openend to VHF Tuner Box. DC Voltages are what I would expect them to be. Any suggestions as to the cause of this problem?
