Ampex AVR-2 Reel Triac Chassis Repairs

      This is a little project I did on VTR #6 late summer 2013. It had some sort of intermittant problem with the take-up reel motor going full-on torque at times. The chassis is  a -05 that had been field updated to a -07 by adding a second set of torque pots for play mode. Therein was the problem...
   It wasn't the modification itself, but the way it was implemented that led to the intermittant gremlins.
    Neatness Counts with all things electronic!
