[time-nuts] FTS4060 was Dead, Now Working?

When my FTS4060 s/n 1013 was delivered it was shipped outside the carton with metal banding holding it on top of the other units in their boxes.
January of this year I got the Operation LED to turn on, but the frequency was drifting about where you would expect a good crystal source to be. So I took this unit completely apart as part of an effort to make a manual.
A few days ago I put it back together and low and behold it locked up and has been locked for a couple of days now. Today I soldered jumpers across the power switch in the SR620 which had gone bad and started comparing the FTS4060 1 MHz zero crossings with the M12T+ 1 PPS and after about an hour the rate seems to be close to a straight line at 6 ps/second. This with the C Field set at 500.
Maybe it's now working?
