The only Heathkit I know of was a company that was big into producing do it yourself electronics projects. I have a radio from the 40's that was a Heathkit project kit. You would basically by the box of parts and instructions and put it all together at home. Pretty neat stuff, wonder if they were some sort of project kits from them.
Finding the inner pieces in the correct sizes might be a bit more difficult that fixing them.
I've been restoring old video game systems, vintage electronic toys, and vintage audio stuff for the past 5 years or so, and I find that 90% a simple cleaning will fix most issues. 8% of the remaining stuff just needs a simple re-solder, and probably the last 2% needs critical components replaced (i.e. capacitors, diodes, resistors, etc.)
