Default Help with capacitors

Can anyone confirm that these values are right?

Poly film caps with marks:

101M 100pF?

330K 36pF?

Also, I need to order .33uF poly film caps. What are the differences between Stack Metal Film caps and Poly B caps? It seems like they have the same spacing. Would it b e ok to use a Stack Metal Film caps instead of a Poly B cap?

I'm guessing these are the caps I sent you. Sorry, I check this forum more frequent than I do my forum email.

1) Yes, 101 = 100pF, 360 = 36pF. Low value caps are marked like resistors. First 2 digits = value, 3rd digit = multiplier.

2) Any film cap that is of 0.33uF, 25V or higher will do. I'd say go for the cheapest film cap.
