I have the first version with the 5V4G rectifier tube and 4uf oil cap off it. Do these oil caps go bad? I plan on swapping out the 40-40-8-8 lytics. Should I go with poly caps in here? Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
If the "oiler" is not physically leaking, leave it be. Electrolytic caps. dry out, over time.
If you have a megger, then could be worthwhile checking for insulation leakage current at say 500VDC to the can in the 4uF - that could save your transformer and rectifier one day.
