K4POZ sells 390uF/450V/105°C capacitors at $2.75 each plus shipping. They are not screw terminal jobs but that shouldn't matter.

See and scroll down the ads to get to his ad.. He renews it quite often.

Hello all,

Figured it was time to re-cap the PS for my Ten-Tec since they are about 25 years old. The amp hasn't been used in a while so you just know what will happen if I DON'T re-cap it before I use it.

I really don't want to change (mechanically) the way the originals are mounted in order to use a different, possibly more available, cap.

Looking for suggestions on sources other than the 'usual' (Digikey, Mouser, etc...)

These caps are 400 MFD x 450 VDC, 85 degree, with screw terminals on top. Terminals appear to be #10, with a 1/2 inch spacing. Dia is 1 3/8 inch and length is 5 5/8 inches, or so.

100 degree would be nice and the capacity can be +/-.

Any input would be helpful. I just don't want to pay $25 per cap if I can find similar for $15.
