I decided to do a Hail Mary today and reinstalled the defective double cap. Turn the radio on and it warms up normally and Works fine on all stations except for a warble on the audio and a slight hum.
So, back to where I was before changing out the double cap. Now why did this happen?? Both new caps test perfect at 30 and 49 uF
The old wax double cap has Green+50 MFD. 150 WV. and Red + 30 MFD. 150 wv. The common black wire goes to the B rail.
I twisted 1 end from each new cap together and soldered to the B Rail, the 30uF cap to where the Red wire went and ditto 50uF cap to the Green both are 160 V.
Where did I screw up?
