you can also salvage some of the capacitors like ceramics, tantalums, and metall;ized film caps, but not the electrolytics. the transformers are usually the output transformers and coupling transformer and its power supply transformer. as to the power transfo you can check for continuity if it's open or not. however you won't be able to know whether the coils are grounded or not.

Hi..Thanks for the advice everybody. I would like to ask a few more questions if possible.
The radio is nearly three decades old.I am finding it difficult to identify some of the components because the serial numbers are not really clear. Is there any particular sight that helps in visual identification ? ( I don't really want to identify the transistor/diode/other component exactly ..just finding what family it belongs to be would be great)
And also Why not the electrolytic capacitors?
