I don't think you should shotgun all your micas, unless you are having a specific issue with one of them.
I am all for replacing one if it is found to be bad. No doubt. As Angelo says, you can do them all, but run up your repair bill.

With a little diagnostic work, you should be ale to isolate the area of the trouble.

If the set is working well, leave 'em alone. They won't cause damage like an electrolytic cap would.

Maybe a little ADHD Smile I know what you mean. I will get one set going, then have another I think I can do fast. Never happens.

It does help to keep the parts in boxes, otherwise I may misplace parts in another areas.

I found that staying with only one, at least until I repair the chassis and it is working, then I can do various ther parts of the resto. Cleaning, cabinets, etc.
