Component Identification
Here is a picture of some of the electronic components that you will be dealing with. I strongly urge you to find out as much about each of them and how they work before you start any modifications to your equipment (although it isn't imperative).

A = Carbon film resistor
B = Metal film resistor
C = Welwyn RC55 resistor
D = Trimmer
E = Transistor
F = Ultrafast soft recovery diode
G = Standard diode
H = Tantalum capacitor
I = Polyester capacitor
J & K = Polypropylene capacitor
L = Electrolytic capacitor
M = Polystyrene capacitor
N = Polypropylene capacitor
O = Voltage regulator
P = High power resistor
