could just be that the internal meters need re-adjusting.
after major surgery like a re-cap, your radio ABSOLUTELY needs a complete alignment.
PLL- RX-TX-metering etc...
your best bet is to send the radio to a good shop to have them give it an alignment, (not just a "peak and tune") and they will be able to tell you if there really is a problem with it.
it would be a good idea to thoroughly check all the new caps to make sure you put them in correctly with regard to the polarity before you send the radio to a shop.
if the tech at the shop has to search around for a backwards cap, its going to cost you some money.
when you say that you replaced the driver, final and regulator; what parts did you replace them with?
were these parts from a used radio?
where did you get the 2SC1969 final from? (there are lots of fakes out there)
my personal recommendations for a shop would be DTB radio or Sparky's CB shack.
many of the "truck stop" CB shops dont know how to give a radio a complete alignment even if they did have the required test equipment.
you definitely need a reputable shop.
if you run into problems, PM me here on the forum and i will try to help you out.
you have a great radio there and it deserves to be healthy! LOL
Two seriously good bits of advice, get the radio aligned properly and get that final checked out,the number of fakes around is staggering.
