Thanks James and also Stuart.
I am busy for the next few days and probably wont get back to the radio for a few. I REALLY appreciate the input. 
I am waiting for the pin diodes and just picked up a DMM that includes a transistor tester built in so I will check the old one first to see what it's condition is. 

I think all the comments are spot on and could be one of these for sure. Just need a good day off or two to get after it. 

I will post updates as I proceed. 

Again Big THANK YOU to all.

I'd suggest that you measure the Q6 transistor that you removed to see what its condition is.  An ohm meter measurement of the emitter-to-base diode and of the collector-to-base diode, both forward and reverse directions, would tell you whether the transistor was  dead or alive.
