Just offering an alternative viewpoint if you want a "stereo" setup.

Finding another chassis, power transformer, and output transformer to
match this is A going to get quite expensive, or B very hard to get done.

What I might suggest is after you get done rebuilding an checking it out
is either A selling it and build yourself a pair of amps, or B buy an second
HF-60 to mate with the original.

Trying to build a "copy" isn't what I would try to do.

It is possible that the capacitance may measure close, but the ESR can still be high indicating a deteriorated cap.

Have fun with your project.
