four legged capacitors, where to get?

Well, just discovered that the main capacitors of my Tandberg TR2075 had about 500 uF left of capacity in them, so some replacements are well in order!:D

Problem is that most 4700/63 caps are a completely different size and pin configuration than the originals, and being such a nice vintage high-end receiver, something original-ish would be nice....

Ortiginal ones were made by Siemens and I know Phillips did some similar ones, but who on earth might be selling something like this??

Hmm.. looks like there are some caps out there with 4 pins that are very close dimension wise... only problem is they are 6800 uF in stead of 4700.... What do you think, will those extra 1100 uF cause any problems? I'm thinking increased start-up current etc...:xeye:
