The first solid state PortaColor was an ugly, boxy looking thing. The next model resembled the tube type styling.
The CRT was similar, but with a 12v heater.
All the 10/11" PortaColors only had a 70 degree sweep, so the tubes were a lot longer.

Where in NW Indiana are you located?
The tube compliment is about the same as the older models with maybe a few changes, HV rectifier etc. CRT is designated under the newer standards, 10V. IIRC, 10VABP22A.
Iím in southern Lake county and itís been block heater/antigel weather all week. The box was so cold it got condensation as soon as I brought it in, so I didnít dare open it for obvious reasons. Iíll open the set itself on a day off and see if the manual is in it. I donít know if I should bother with a recap yet?

That set doesn't have a manual in it. The mini-manual was only in the slightly newer models, usually solid state.
The only cap, I would worry about is the boost cap, .1mfd @ 1kv or 1.2kv.
