You dont need anything that high in capacity, the 270uF 450V carried by Ameritron and also in the MFJ catalog will do just fine. About $13.50 last time I looked.


Availability is probably going to be the problem....
Check with Ten-Tec....if they no longer use them...ask for a recommendation.
Check with Henry Radio....they still have screw terminal lytics.
Recently I serviced a Henry 3KD with screw terminal caps from Henry.

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,

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.

73 de Steve, NR4M
