HI, I bought this from a CB shop of all places but I decded to get this to keep Cbers from pirating, but I ran it for awhile and noted a few bad parts the 1200uf Cap. @ 16V. replaced that w/a 25v. and suddenly it got hot and Bang ! I had wax & paper all over the board I clipped a diode in question maybe a polarity protector.

I have not figgured it out as some sort of short anyone had this experience ?

Sounds like the repalcement cap was put in backwards, or another compnent failure.  
The HW-2036 was the Heath 2 meter FM synthesized radio made from 1976 to 1979.
If you need a speciric part, W8EK was parting out a HW-2036 a couple of months ago.

Good diagrams here
