Thanks, Sterling for your sharp eye. Thanks Jean et al. Until those caps, I had replaced smaller caps where polarity isn’t an issue. Then I read that the newer caps no longer have a polarity issue. partly true, but not for the larger electrolytic caps! Radio is back together correctly and plays loud and clear! Thanks for all that took the time to help a newbie out. I can get a little obsessed when I’m trying to solve or understand the problem and can’t move on until I find an answer. I have ordered a proper capacitor checker ( Circuit Test LCR DLM 260) after reading that my Fluke is too low powered to properly check caps. I will slowly build up my workshop bit by bit.
Thanks again, Gary in Montreal
