I looked over my board and notice that I have two relays instead of one so I don't have a 3rd hole on the two bottom output caps. Has anyone done this upgrade with a board like this? Is it OK to squeeze the legs of the capacitor together to fit in there?
It's perfectly fine to squeeze the leads together. Just try to get the cap leads as far into the board as possible, to reduce the "wire" length".
