JEN Wah Restore?

Hoping for some expertise to help with this old JEN Wah Pedal that I was given years ago by a friend. Only just rediscovered it now and realised it's value and potential. It still sort of works, but is very crackly and has some blind spots.

I'm a complete novice when it comes to electronics, so I'm entirely sure about what I'm looking at. I've read a little about the different fasels that come on these old pedals. I'm guessing that this is a white fasel, but in all the pictures I've found I haven't seen one like this.

I wouldn't mind having a go at restoring this, possibly replacing the pot and foot switch, and maybe even giving it true bypass. But, as I say, I've no idea what I'm really doing! This page seems quite helpful detailing another restoration on one of these pedals - https://ivanrichards.com.au/2013/07/24/another-wah-pedal-blog-the-cry-baby-super-by-jen-of-italy/

So any advice, hints, tips, inside knowledge etc. would be appreciated.
