so upon further research it appears that the transistor can smoke a resistor if it is bad...the transistors in this thing are motorola 052 MJE1102....Where can I get those or what modern part would replace them?

thanks

You may want to find out WHY the resistor smoked. Once those parts leak the magic smoke, it's really hard to get it back inside.
