Default Tube Bogen J330 PA amp

I have a tube bogen j 330 with 2 Jensen alnico 12's.

I got this great clean amp and it powered up and worked great for hours, but then the main capacitor had a meltdown. I took it to an elec . shop but the guy there was a nitwit. Long story short; I don't know what value capacitors this takes. The original was a single can with 2 or 3 different cap values inside.

Any suggestions?

Service info (schematic, parts list) is in Sams Photofact folder 291-5 - I don't think I have it. Check your library.

The service center where I took it lost the original cap. I'm sure my library doesn't have any photofact books. There is a city an hour or so which may have it.

Thanks for the responses. If anyone else has an idea let me know.

Forget the can. Mount axial lead caps somewhere convenient. The 22uf @ 500v caps are readily available adn inexpensive. So I would use a couple of them. If you then decide there needs to be more filtration, you can change to a larger cap. The 22/500 is as good a starting point as any. If yours has a voltage doubler, then maybe a couple 40uf instead.

Thanks again for the advice. What about one of these?

What would be the effects of using the wrong value?
