I have a receiver like this and it has oscillation noise when a station is tuned. I want to adjust the intermediate frequency and radiofrequency but the oscillating coils seem sealed in upper part and from what I see in the service manual there are only some small coils (i think they are called worm coils or something like that)  in the form of a white tube on the bottom of the receiver. It seems that the adjustment is made in them but I do not want to damage them without informing me beforehand. Thank all

Dear Radiophils

Recently I've noticed that I've a BX281U back cover in my BX272U instead of the right one. They are are very similar though not equal.

Do you know where can I get one ?

Best Regards
