Hi bob/all
Yes, it's a new board the caps I have are rubycon with a dia of 15mm but a larger value of 22uf @ 450volts it seems to be the bigger the voltage the thicker the leads are as a 15mm 200 volt fits. it looks like I will have to find a cap with a Dia of 10 or 12mm 400volt I hadnít even considered the lead Dia between a 10 to 15mm cap would be any different for 400/450volts at 10/22uf values
