Mixed feelings about this.

I totally agree that changing random components is not great and can lead to additional faults being put onto the equipment if care isn't taken. However, I'm inclined to (carefully) do a recap of equipment that is of an age where it's highly likley that all the waxed paper types are likley to be defective.

Trying to logically fault find equipment that is likley to have multiple faults and may be subject to further damage while you are trying to logically work your way through it doesn't seem such a great idea.
