Greg:

MY gut feeling is that these are related to TRT Wondercaps, but I can find no supporting evidence for this. I think it would be nice to give a list of caps that will fit and I can help you with those dimensions.

You could use any other high quality polypropylen cap like WIMA MKP10 or Rifa PHE450.
I like the RIFA somewhat more but differences are small at that low level of voltage. RIFA also has a new type called SMR that uses PPS dielectric that has very little distortion at audio frequencies. Boutique caps rarely show any improvement and are much more expensive.

I realize lots of people aren't located in Toronto or vicinity, but for those who are, this particular capacitor is found in a local surplus store named Active Surplus, on Queen St. near CityTV. It's cost in the surplus store is a few dollars a piece.

ah, that's nice to know

It looks like something that is axial leaded and is 1.5" long and 1" wide will be the best fit. Not that box caps won't fit, but it could be a tricky fit and would require a ~40mm pitch, which isn't too common but perhaps a 37.5mm pitch might be able to be forced in... This is probably something best tested on the actual boards.

Just lay out the board with space for various pitch leads based on the usual suspect sizes, Wima MKP10, eg.

Looks like I'll have a couple boards left over. If anyone is interested, please PM me.
