Ampex 351 preamp repair?

I recently purchased a Ampex 351 and am in the process of getting back to 100% working condition. Transport is working fine and the master 351 pre records and plays back fine.......however the slave 351 is not recording 100% correctly. I've recapped the unit which didn't seem to help any. I did locate a cap which had torn off the board and torn a trace which i did repair but it's still not right. I'm kind if in over my head on this one.

Is there anyplace or any one that specializes in repair of these in the US? i'd like to get this second pre recording correctly.

2 351 pre's and transport.

i just got my alignment tape today and i haven't had time to align the deck so that may be my problem right there but I'll see if i can locate the guy you are talking about.
