And with that lineup, apart from possible dirty contacts / tired electrolytics, probably works just fine!

Thanks for info lads. It works very well. Didn’t have to do anything electronically to it. Replaced drive cord, recovered cabinet, repaired speaker grille fixings and made back cover that was missing.
Regards
Peter
