Yes, I recall these "performance television" series as being predictable and routine repairs. When vertical shrinks,, replace a few electrolytic caps and its like new again. the one-knob rotary tuners with LED readout, sometime went bad but was not a huge hit for a factory rebuild, $25 or so.

+2 on the "extra-crappy" EC chassis requiring massive re-soldering, which we dubbed the "griplett plus" models, after the 10" and 13" AA-AC chassis which was the original griplet-soldering models. They made a nice bright picture tho.
