Hi Jaime,

I've replaced a number of Candohms over the years.

Zenith published a list of part numbers with individual section power ratings.

Most have one or two sections with ratings >1 watt while the rest are low-power.

The highest power in any multi-section Candohm is 6 watts.

Here's that Zenith list if you want to peruse it:

Unfortunately, I know of no such list for Philco radios.

The simple way to calculate dissipation is using voltages.

If a voltage drop E appears across a resistor R, the power is E * E / R.

I would use a replacement resistor with at least 3 times the calculated value.
