OK, I didn't recon on the metal adjusters. I wonder if you pushed the can clip off whether you could pull the whole can, adjuster and core off the top of the coil former?

I needed to get to the two caps in the line sync discriminator can, to do that, I had to unsolder the connections to the can, undo the two screws underneath to remove it. Bend out tabs, then I had to squeeze in tabs on the top of the adjuster metal to allow the can to be withdrawn. I never removed the metal clip but assume looking at the small divots in it, it has sections formed into the tube to hold it in place.

Think it would be easiest to remove the can from chassis first otherwise I am trying to work around components and the tube. But for now it is working,. I offered up the back panel now it is flat and thin found it has shrunk! The holes for the screws do not line up with the holes in the cabinet, not by a lot out so will see what I can do for that soon.

Ask questions and learn, or try to!
