    A friend of mine just got a Bandmaster TFL5005d and he just brought it over, opened it up and the Filter caps are leaking. I found the one value, and know that its readily available (20MFD@500v)

    I cant seem to find these anywhere- 70MFD@350v. If I change the value in these what are the differences it would make? Or should I stick to stock value?

    Something close is fine. Like 80uF @450v or whatever. Just don't skimp on the voltage rating. :)

    The important thing is to meet or exceed the voltage rating of the original cap. Higher value (say 100uF) tightens the low end a bit, lower loosens it up. The 80uf/450V cap on this page will work fine: http://triodeelectronics.com/elcap300to60.html
