I am working on a Yaesu FLDX 400 transmitter and several of the hex slugs in
several of the coils are cracked.  I am in big trouble now.  How does one go
about removing them and then the bigger question might be how do I find
replacements and what kind of material is the slug core???  Is there
something else I can do besides finding a junker transmitter someplace of
the exact model???  I am so close in getting this radio working 100% too.
Yaesu put wax in all the cores and it sure is gummy stuff by the way and
found that the only way to get it out is with heat from a hair dryer.


Any ideas or help would be greatly appreciated.
