What does P. T. stand for on the schematic? I'm drawing a blank. I'm sure it's something simple.

I'll bet you 28 cookies that the "P" means paper. P.T. = paper type, paper/tar, ?????

In any case, replace them

I love the units on the ceramics: kilo micro micro farad. Let's see: 1.5 K uuF means 1.5 X 10^3 X 10^-6 X 10^-6 = 1.5 X 10^-9
Oh, you meant 1.5 nanoFarads!!!
