Colors are faded, horizontal width squished in a bit (adjusted all the way
out), some caps are bulged/leaky, picture edge is jagged, retrace lines in
the picture because the HV has to be high to compensate for low overall
brightness. You know the routine, the picture just looks tired.
There is also some burn in on the tube, so depending on how happy I am after
capping it, I may do a tube swap also. I have another 13" tube, but haven't
yet checked the yoke/pinouts to see if it will work.

Thanks for that one. I hadn't thought to do it, but I will now. So far I
have only capped G07's and a 4900, and those were with Bob's kits.
