    Hi,

    I bought a Dynacord Twen from '66. It has a Neuberger can cap 40+20+30uF 500V. Date code is '68. I want to replace the can cap. Are there any NOS caps like that? Or can I change by a double 50+50uf cap? Any help would be fine.

    An NOS cap can from the 60s or 70s is a great deal. (for the guy selling it)

    Weber has a 20/20/20/30 that will work, tie two of the twenties together.

    I love those JJ multi-cap cans and they are the most inexpensive. That is what I would use. Shop around, but they are around $15.

    OP would be well advised to measure the hole size of the existing can...

    Chances are the hole is for a 1" FP or a 1-3/8" FP.

    A lot of you guys are suggesting caps that won't fit.

    I meant new instead of NOS. It's a big screw mount cap can like in this picture[​IMG]

    You will have to drill two holes for the mounting clamp, but a new JJ multi-cap should do the trick!

    Sometimes I'll stuff new caps into a can. Weber sells some pretty small caps that work good for that.
    On a Fender Champ or Princeton I use the CE cans that fit right.
    I only do that on things that aren't worth spending much. on.
