Re-capping help for a newbie

Hi folks, I am hoping I get some help here for a recapping project I trying to take on myself. I am competent at soldering but my electronics education is mostly forgotten. The amp I am working on is my first venture into tube amps and is an old Bogen DB-212. It actually works well and sounds better than expected, even with original components and unrefined ears.
I have the all the Photofact info for my amp but it seems that some of the DB-212 caps are not available at the original specifications. Below are a couple electrolytic caps I can't find modern replacements for. I even called tubes and more but they could not help.

• 5uf 200v
• 100uf 6v

I know I need to match the voltage with the OEM spec or higher. What about the capacitance rating?

Thank you,
