I can do it man Almost killed myself already(filter caps discharging through my arm) I'm not trying to do it again there is some bleeder resisters 2 by the main filter caps both are 56k 2watt so it bled some power already and no I'm not doing the old school screw driver discharging technique, grounding them out to the chassis etc good way to blow up something else and weld that damn bastard to the chassis rofl I'm gonna play it safe rig up a jumper with a resistor that will be more than capable and go to ground etc, a few of them resistors look old or got hot etc so I'll see what I find. I already went through hell and back with ******** techs that try to ripp you off, so to hell with them that's why I started doing this **** myself.

all the caps look good but that doesn't mean much I know but like I said I have a bunch and **** load of spare resistors, I'm worried more about them old looking resistors and maybe check the ICs while I'm at it just check everything and replace damn near anything I can lol it needs it for sure the quality of caps in the stealth isn't exactly that good lol
