And, note what happens when the power is reversed:
the 25uF cap connected to the T2 emitter charges via leakage through T2.
When the power is put the right way around, this cap provides foward bias to 
T2, which then amplifies.. until the cap discharges through the T2 emitter 

Maybe I am right - maybe I am not - but the thing to remember is this: every 
circuit always works exactly as the laws of physics say it should. It may be 
that the circuit you are working on, isn't the circuit you think (or wish) 
it is, though!
That's advice from the late Bob Pease, and it's helped me a lot.

Think about it this way: before you can restore your gear to the circuit it 
WAS, you have to determine what it is NOW.
