I am repairing an RCA Victor 9Y5 radio/phonograph that I beleive has silver mica disease. I need to know what capacitor values I should use for the 1st and 2nd IF transformers if I repair it. Specifically C-18, C-19 and C-9, C-10.

These values are not shown on the schematic and being new to radio repair I do not have much test equipment. I do have hand held multimeters and capacitor tester.

I was hoping that someone may have had similar experience with these type radios and could recommend the proper capacitor values. This radio is very similar to the RCA Victor console radio model 9W501.

I have read that some people replace these IF trans. with all 100pf values with good success but I'm hesitant to do so because I've seen many scematics with values as low as 30pf .

Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
