The caps they are selling are: Nichicon LGQ2W471MHSC. According to the
Nichicon web site these are their High Reliability Type caps. I have a PDF
format data sheet for these parts. As for the question of will they work in
a HV supply string. I recently lost several caps in my SB-220 (27 yrs old)
and did not have an extra $115.00 available to purchase the drop in
replacement part that Harbach sells, so I bought 10 for $22.50. I had
already done the AG6K mods to the amp, so I just replaced the cap bank with
8 of these caps. They are about half the length of the old caps, but the
same diameter, data shows them at 1.375"D x 2.00"L. Last night I finished
the installation, and fired up the amp, NO SMOKE. Quick testing showed 1
KW out on 40M and 1 KW out on 10M, now it's on to removing the input
circuits and converting it to 6M.
Anyone needing more info, please just ask.
