I never got to the Hovlands, I was starting to see a pattern with the DC heater amp where I preferred paper-foil-in-oil so stopped trying plastic film caps.

Hey-Hey!!!,
I have gotten good results from motor-run caps. I have ASC 1 uF/440VAC ( 900VDC ), and my slight preference is Siemens MKV 1.5 uF 660VAC ( 1k3 VDC?). Probably more the size( capacitance ), than maker.

I'll offer you a pair of the 1.5 uF MKV on something like long-term loan. They're pretty much bomb-proof.
cheers,
Douglas
