You'll need a pipe cutter, your caps, some tools and a little patience





Cut right above the flange





Cut can and flange with innards cleaned out







Epoxy solder tabs from rear of flange for strength



Prepare capacitor bundle


Drop capacitor bundle into can

solder terminals in holes drilled through flange



Glue end flange on and clamp






Complete





3 reworked cans installed

Lots more to do but getting there

This works great for classic pieces or those components where you just can't fit the array of teriminal strips and axial caps underneath. If you have the time and patience it looks great and undistdinguishable from the original. Now the Marantz 1 has 105 degree super quality Nichcons in the PS preserving the original look.

Hope some of you will give it a try..
