The Howard 300 is coming along nicely and sounds good but it could be beteer. I still need to replace the power condenser (10, 10, 20). This one is in a can on the top of the chassis. From what I read on the interenet there different ways to go about this replacement so I'm asking those who have done it before the best route to take. The can is riveted to the chassis. Some say remove the can all together, someone say remove restuff and reinstall, others cut everthing loose at the botton and hang the new caps underneath. I'm not a purist and hope to never be called a hack. I'm a realist, so conventional wisdom wins here. Your thoughts gentlemen.

Hi. I say if you have no experience, or, desire to re stuff the can, leave it mounted on the chassis. Notcied the insulating wafer between bottom of can, and, chassis.
I'd disconnect at least the positive connections, and, connect new electrolytics using terminal strips.Be sure of proper polarity, and, correct foltage caps. Never use anything lower than rated voltage.
Be neat, tidy, that's important.
Good connections, decent solder jobs very important.
With care, and, patience, a good job can be done, and, improve things like power supply hum...
