This is a complete electrolytic capacitor replacement kit (except for the internal power supply) for the Icom IC-751A transceiver. The IC-751A is truly a collector's item for the vintage ham radio enthusiast. I have been restoring vintage ham radio equipment for years, and electrolytic capacitors have a design life span which one has to recognize if the intent is to keep your IC-751A running for a long time to come.
As a retired broadcast transmitter maintenance technician, when I take in a piece of equipment not only is it restored cosmetically to like-new condition, it is also electrically re-newed.
Part of my restoration process is the replacing of all electrolytic capacitors. Electrolytic's over time change value due to leakage, electrical stress, heat exposure etc., and can be very annoying to trouble shoot especially when intermittent. There are 108 small electrolytic's used in the IC-751A so for those who like probability calculations, figure out the failure rate possibility for capacitors that already have 30 years of service! In all cases the capacitors have been replaced with the exact value of the original, but in many cases I was able to take advantage of smaller modern day components increasing the voltage rating of the replacement unit.
Included in the kit is an installation guide to help those along who might feel a bit nervous doing this type of board work.
** There is no retuning of the radio required as the capacitors being changed are power supply related, or audio coupling/decoupling. Minor adjustment of the VOX controls may be required when new capacitors are installed.
** Installation Time is approximately 8 hours from start to finish for an experienced technician. For all others just take your time and enjoy its a fun project.
