The Fine Things are Always Hand Made

Greetings Working on the AW23 tuner rebuild.

I replaced the grid cap wire on the ifs. Can I leave it a few inches longer and tuck it back in the can (Im using test probe wire its super flexible) or should they be as short as possible.

Also the condenser trimmers on the ifs have a lot of powdery oxidation.  Any suggestions on cleaning? was thinking of alcohol and a flux brush. Or should I just leave it alone?

Thanks for the input . I am almost done with the tuner. Next I will do the power supply.

John -

On the IF leads, I usually cut them so I only push back maybe an inch or so - a small amount won't hurt anything. 

I dust the moving parts with a very soft (camel's hair) brush, I don't use any solvent. However, Alcohol is probably fine.
