NOOB recap question :-)
« on: 2020.September.12. 19:50:19 »
I am in the proces of recapping my Egyptian EP64 board.

I am out of horisontal 10 ferrit caps so I have to switch to vertical.

However I am a bit unsure if I am putting them in correctly.

In short my questions is if the end with the curve on the Phillips caps on a EP64 are +.

As far as I can see from my research it is but I want to be sure before I test.

The old cap is here. The end with the curve is in the bottom of the picture.

Thank you in advance. Judge have posted a picture of his recapped board but I must confess that I can't really see what end is + on his caps. I am a cap NOOB :)

In the attached picture I marked the poles of the electrolyte capacitor.
