RE: Aerovox 610 capacitors, what type are they?

Those are probably wax capacitors. They are often found on old lower cost scopes HV power supplies that don't use a second anode CRT at several KV. Like 1960s tube Heath and Eico units. 1200v is a popular value.

yes they should be replaced as they are about as bad as old paper caps
