The capacitors you are looking for are little silver cans with black bases. The leakage would appear as oily residue around them, the solder joints may be dull instead of shiny and if it's really bad, the green solder mask might be flaking off too. Dust also tends to stick to the leaked electrolyte more than elsewhere on the board.

An A1200 does not as standard have a real-time clock, so it's normal that the date has dropped back to 1978. The one with the Blizzard should have a clock, so its battery is probably long since gone.
