I've had limited success in working on the RF power supply ... it's not great, but it will at least hold 500W of power without drooping for 30 minutes.
Things changed: replaced both the electrolytics in the +12V and +40V power supplies in the oscillator and first drive stage.
Replaced the 2N3866 and MJE2801 transistors in the oscillator stage.  Change the emitter degeneration resistor in Q3 to a 1/2W 15 ohm resistor (the 1/4W was margina). Replaced the 741 op amp.
So, modest improvements .... but no smoking gun that restored full 1000W power.
