I bought the kit from Klondike Mike (before I realized the little IC was the problem). The values in there weren't exactly the same, IIRC, but were as close as what's commonly available today will allow.
That's the issue I'm finding now. One cap in there is 50 microfarad at 25 volts and the others are 25 microfarad at 16 volt. But when I look at the schematics some of them are showing a pair of 10 microfarad on those positions and some schematics are showing a pair of twenties. So I ordered a couple of 22s and a 47, all three of them at 35 volts.

Quick question. The caps on my amplifier board in my Turner plus 3 have the positives marked. I noticed just about everything in recent times the negative is marked. Now, the new ones I just received have a zero on them out of the picture attached, is that marking negative or positive?

Quick update, I got the caps in and the tone was still muffled with no presence whatsoever. So I swapped out the element with a parts Plus three I had here and now it works, and is crispy, but when I key up it has a roar noise in the background. Chineseium caps or something else? I know one element is dynamic and the other is ceramic, but why the roaring noise?

    3Y0J: Update January 29, 2023: Ken estimates Marama should arrive at Bouvet on Monday evening just before sunset. He says he anticipates a good weather window for at least two days then. The team will attempt to move the equipment and supplies onto the island using the zodiac then. They have two zodiacs. They are hoping to accomplish it in those two days. :cool:
