Thanks for that advice , never even considered RS or Farnell !! Just had a quick look on Farnell and their selection filters for component selection are superb !!
Need to check the parameters for the original caps to see if they have anything suitable.

It's probably unlikely you will get exact size substitutes, capacitor technology has moved on a lot since and are smaller now. However you should be able to buy suitable replacement clamps too and fit those with a little modification.

I've seen those ADCOM caps too in the net. Can you tell me something more about them? Who produced those caps for ADCOM? Thanks.

Your biggest concern is going to be the distance between the terminals, 1.125". The way the caps are mounted in a DC300 narrows down the replacements quite a bit.

Didn't get around to looking at the mounting details yet but was assuming replacements would need to be identical. It must have been done though so they must be available.
