Re: {Collins} Collins 30L1 resistor/cap board

Those resistors are 10 ohm 2 watt carbon comp resistors.  They act as a fuse for the HV cage.

I could probably do the job if I could get the gray cover off the rig, but it must have a trick to remove it.  I do have photos to show the burned out resistors and condition of the capacitors if anyone could assist me.
