Dead Mac IIcx

I decided to pull out my first Mac and try to boot it. It won't boot.
The power button on the mother board and the keyboard both do nothing.
So I decided to test the power suppily. I could not find any pinouts for
a IIcx power suppily. Does anyone have that information?
Also I took a close look at the motherboard. It has 7 silver cans.
Capacitors I think. They are all surounded by a thin layer of sticky
goo. Is this a sure sign my caps have leaked?
I appologize for the blury photo, but it gets my point across.
You'll also notice my batery is pulled. Everything on I've read so far
say a IIcx should boot without the batery.
Thanks for the help!
