I'm replacing the capacitors in my first radio. Does it matter which direction they're facing? The old ones had obvious markings but I'm not sure about the new ones.
Why not post a scan of the underside so we can see what you are referring to.
If the set has a vertically mounted black cardboard or silver metal cylinder on top of the chassis, advise what the capacitance and working voltage values, printed or embossed on the side, are as well.
