Here's the 2nd IF. To my inexperienced eye, I would say the wafer looks pretty bad. The spec on the caps is 75pf. I just need to find a couple and solder them in and test it. Meanwhile, the replacement I found is working like a champ. Radio has been playing for a little over 3 hours now. Nothing like listening to oldies on an oldie.....and working on radios.

Yep. That's the problem. Then, you can keep that one as an extra when first can gets bad enough, or, just replace forst can.
Replacement is fine.

Let's see...
The 9th posting to this thread was me, suggesting stocking up on 100pf silver-mica caps. (because I knew what the problem was.)
Was that not enough of a hint?
Oh well.
