    Joey,did you ever make that 31A resto video for youtube?I can`t find it.Specifically,I was wondering if you found a source for the three 30mfd can caps,or went with axial or radial ones underneath.

    I never did make the video for that one. Bear in mind that, while I still have my original 31A amp, I replaced it in the cabinet with a 31H Type II for switching purposes. The design is a little different, but here's what I wound up doing:

    Regarding the can cap...there is a 30/30 450V can and next to it is a single 30 450V can as shown here:

    What I did was replace both of these with a single 30/30/30 525V can here:

    Underneath, since there was a tab available I was able to reroute the single can over to the double (before and after):

    Then, I simply kept the old single can as a "dummy" to keep it looking like the original configuration. Hope this helps....

    Ok,thanks.Since my 3 chassis holes are all smaller,I won`t be able to use a multi cap.I`ll keep them as dummies too,and put new underneath.
