Manufacturer - Part Number - Datasheet? I'm asking because I didn't find a very good match with the information in your message.

It's usually like this:

Strange that you have datasheet but not the required data Ime there is usually printed code to describe the +/- pins. It can be many caps in one package or just one cap with supporting pins. Check again any printed codes (or molded on the base near the pins), or other graphics code and painted pins

You're right, I couldn't find anything there either. Take my poached drawing [from another Vishay datasheet] and DUG's elaborate "ohmmeter" message. Together they ought to provide the answer and nothing could possibly go wrong.

Either the pins are connected to one end of the cap or the other or are just for support.

Sorry, I've run out of ideas.

Yes. Three pins on one side continuos
Same on the other. Plates in between. 6 pins to stick it to a PCB
If I was making them I might add a couple of dots or something. They don't give them away!!(the capacitors)
Thanks

200uF 500V MKP should be very big. Strange. I guess the 3 pins are connected to each other.
