Default receiver ouput stage problem?


I just got a technics SA-400 for $15 at a yard sale.

Problem is, the right channel will distort if I turn up the volume more than just the quietest level. It sounds clean when it's super quiet though.

I ordered new darlington power packs (STK-0050 to replace the STK-0040's it came with) working on the assumption that it's a problem in the output stage.

Can I just solder the new powerpacks in or do I need to be careful of other considerations?

Am I even on the right track here?
