If you want/need help with repairing the Sony, start a dedicated thread.

Perry, fist of all I forgot to say I appreciate your work.

I will start a new thread if I can't figure it out in a month or so. I want to see if I can try my hand at it.

Hey all, I just got in a container of Dow Corning 340. Easy as clean with 90%ipa then speed a nice thin layer to fill the surface inconsistencies?
Going to do the Kenwood and A/D/S first because of the issues with the Sony..

I prefer acetone but alcohol will work.

Apply enough so that you have a nice small bead displaced around the entire perimeter of the transistor when clamped.
