    I have the RA2150 and am doing a recap.

    should I do anything to "update" it.



    I plan on doing all the caps, I have no schematic.


    Taking the lead spacing and height limit of the big caps, here's what I plan on getting to replace these:

    Should I just stick with factory values on the big caps?


    Also the thermal insulation seems to be paper....not sure what to do there either.

    thanks
