Has anyone replaced the ratio detector electrolytic on this model?  It appears to be contained within a screening can surrounding the EABC valve and containing the demodulator inductors.  Does the top of the can lift off without desoldering everything from below?  Is it acceptable to leave this original component and simply replace the accessible electrolytics? 

Thank you.

Dear Steve,

if the old capacitor is not shorted, you can add a new one outside the discrimainator subassembly. Give a look at this article from Bernhard Nagel.
