I am restoring an old RCA tube radio and it has a 330 uf 500v mica capacitor. The only replacement I have been able to find is a snap-in electrolytic which won't fit in the chassis. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

That should be 330 uuf or 330 pf in modern notation.  Mica caps are rarely defective, can't remember the last time I changed one.

You are right. Since I am new to this stuff, I assumed (!) the value of plain old 330 on the Sam's parts list was uF. I now know better!  Thanks
