Default ARC D90 needs new electrolytics

Looking for electrolytics that will fit in my Audio Research D90. The old ones are gone and ARC wants $60 a piece for them (8 is needed) so i´m trying to find a replacement that is a little less costly.
It feels like i have been looking everywhere. Farnell had a few that was good but didn´t fit diameter-wise.
The originals are 135mm high and 35 mm in diameter. The last of these amps that left the factory had 450v/450uF. The earliest examples had 450v/300uF.

All help is very much appreciated

Take a look at the JJ El Caps 500uF/500v, 35mm diam - 88mm long.
Hope that fits you....

Thanks for the help both of you. AroS3; Can´t seem to find them anywhere. Do you have a link?
KLM1; unfortunately they are to big. Can´t be more than 35mm wide to fit.

KLM1; I missed your second suggestion. They might work but i have to check if i can fit them in the holes. If so, perfect.

AroS3; Found it on the tube store but they are out of stock. Any suggestions?

aroS3; it looks like the JJ:s only can take a temperature up to 70 degrees celsius. Is that enough? It gets pretty hot in there

Hi,

Here's something that meets the 450V headroom and diameter requirement. Long life, high ripple current, and high temp range too:
