Besides my various Ten Tecs, I will occasionally refurb something else.

I have a TS-50 that suffers the classic "leaky" electrolytic issue...  (they 
leak and damage
the underlying board traces). I need to swap out a surface mount 47uf 16v.

Rather than risk another leaky part, for the SMD part I can either swap it 
out for a leaded part, or a
smaller leaded Tantalum cap. (both rated at 25v)  Any risk in swapping a 
tantalum for the electrolytic?
