I had one that was not working, I dug/melted out the black insulation found the broken wire, resoldered it back together again and away it went, I was fair pleased with my self.

Remelted the insulation back in and put the box back together.

The tar inside is certainly messy stuff. I need to find out what capacitor should be fitted next, the old foil type looks to have seen better days. Hardly surprising really, it was sat in a puddle at Oakly in October...
