FM made me feel stupid ... but I won! Telefunken Opus 8 restoration pt. 4

The FM on Telefunken Opus tube radios is amazing when it works as it was designed to do. When there is a problem, however, finding it can be challenging. If you need to actually open up the FM front end, you may well be opening up a can or worms.
When the 'fault' is something that you yourself imagine, that becomes another issue. Just as time-consuming to solve, but more self-discrimination than technical skill is needed.
Enjoy my pain, and avoid yours.
