Re: No power out and receive seems to be about 20 dB down on my K3s, intermittent....

That is the same exact problem that I had. There is a board , just behind the K3 in "Electraft K3 Tranciever" that gives timing to the transmitter, vfo , and vfo b. without the timing there is no transmit. instead of opening the rig up, i gave the top of the rig a thump (not a mighty thump, just a thrump) just above the K3 in the sentence I mentioned above. I have not had an issue for the last 8 months.

I had somewhat similar symptoms a while back and followed the advice given here to check that all the TMP connectors were seated properly. I reseated them all and my symptoms have not reappeared.
Also, what does your K3S report as its input VDC?
