Its probably still worth looking at all the test points on this board 
and seeing if the spectral content is what it should be.
If it is don't make any adjustments, otherwise adjustment should be 
relatively trivial as the procedure is relatively straightforward.
However there are some capacitively (critically?) tuned resonant 
circuits which will need some care to adjust correctly.
