Motorola Mylar?

You sure that's not Mallory.  I've never seen a Motorola cap.

As to film caps

in order look for

Teflon - to expensive - too big - to hard to film

Polypropylene - film and foil or metalized film - generally available but often large

Polystyrene - smaller values

what is the value, voltage rating and physical size of the original

1970's Rhodes 73 suitcase

That's what I was told from the Rhodes site and there's no name or insignia? The caps are white with blue letters electrolytics.....I would like to replace caps because it's a little fuzzy sounding.......doesn't have that ....sound.... Laughing
