WARNING!! 
There are High Voltages with enough punch to easily kill you 
exposed all over inside these old rigs
both above and below the chassis.
The capacitors can hold a lethal charge 
well after voltage is turned off and the rig is unplugged. 
Make sure to bleed off capacitors with an insulated and grounded screw driver 
before touching anything 
even after the unit is physically unplugged from the AC outlet.

Remember the old ham radio and electronics practice... 
Work on the radio one handed leaving one hand behind your back.
If you have both hands inside the unit and accidentally touch a lead or brush a capacitor
current could potentially pass through your body and stop your heart.

Always instruct others to turn off the circuit breaker 
or unplug the radio 
before touching you if you are bit else they might be electrocuted, too.
