I wonder if you could give me any advice on a Heath Kit SB 200 amp I am rebuilding. I have about 12, .02 uf Disc capacitor in the unit used for rf bypass that I would like to replace. The caps have no voltage rating printed on them nor does the schematic indicate a voltage value. Also I have been unable to find .02 value anywhere. Can I use a different value ? Any advice would be appreciated.

Hi Ricky,

I wouldn't expect them to go bad. But, if you want to replace them there is a good discussion about these capacitors.
