"After re-installing the grid caps and coil shields, I completed a final polishing of the tuner chassis.  The chrome really stands out once polished.  I must say, it took hours doing it by hand.  A labor of love I suppose! Jon"

"Thank you Thomas, I will do this.  Looks as though the tab that protrudes from the can is soldered to the braided strap.  I will de-solder this section as well when disassembling.  Everything is shielded so well! …"

"Jon: Unsolder the cap and gently pull the lead thru the can while lifting the can from the chassis. On my Allwave 23 the cans are a pretty tight fit. I added a length of wire to the lead to put it back thru the can, then unsoldered the extra wire…"
