Circled in red. Has a single red band around it. I want to start this project in the next few days.

Phenolic body low value capacitor I believe. Maybe 2 pf? I can't remember how to read those without locating my cheat sheets. Schematic should ID it. Probably OK anyway. Get second opinion.

Or is that a brown paint band blending in, so it would be 20 pf?

Could be brown paint, but my 53 year old eyes are not cutting it. We can get a 2nd opinion to be sure. I can't see it in the SAMS

I walked out to my garage workshop and checked mine.

It's a light beige body with a single RED band. The Sams funny picture labels it as C17, a 2.2 pf capacitor going to 1L6 pin 3. To verify, the actual device shows a single wire going to the oscillator coil. Other schematics I have labels it as a 1.2 pf cap.

The Sams parts list confirms.

Thanks. Should it be replaced?
