Dan, et al,
O.K. I went ahead and ordered the pre WW2 radio axial cap kit which covers all the Mfd caps except for the 3 higher value ones that i ordered separately. I could not find a suitable “kit’ that contained enough of the MMFD Caps that I needed so I ordered those individually. However, 5 of them I was unable to easily find so I ordered the closest values I could get.
Is this O.K.? or should I look harder on line for the correct values. For example: I need a 115 mmfd and could only find a 110, also i couldn’t find a 175 mmfd and went with a 180 etc. I spent zero time looking so far except at Justradios.
