    Here's the current version of that part, still being manufactured: (Vishay Sprague 36DX 30000uf, 25VDC): https://www.alliedelec.com/product/vishay-specialty-capacitors/36dx303g025bc2a/70079382/

    I'm curious. Why do you think that the cap needs to be replaced?

    Usually the big lamp supply filter capacitor doesn't need replacing. In fact I don't remember ever having to do that. The 5V and display power filters, yes. But never the big one.

    $55 BUCKS!!! WTF
    See post below...

    GPE has this right at $12

    Hey man, I’m just dumping the info that’s out there as a repository for people to compare prices.

    I like to favorite threads like this to find parts that are missing, especially when you buy a project pin. OP didn’t mention a replacement so I’m assuming it’s just gone.

    haha I know man, just having some fun with ya

    i literally just bought that one from g-p-e for my Firepower resto for 2 reasons:

    1. Its Black
    2. Its $12

    The 40 year old original blue one is "probably" fine but now i don't even need to question it.

    Edit: 3rd reason: its GPE

    A couple more good options at Mouser Electronics (my favorite source for parts):

    Lowest price, exact oem specs.:
    https://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/KEMET/ALS70A303DA025?qs=sGAEpiMZZMtZ1n0r9vR22YqjN7vGN3ZSFC7Ixb34xzWK9fCV4GllLQ%3D%3D

    More expensive, but known to be high-quality (and in production at least 40 years):
    https://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/Cornell-Dubilier-CDE/CGS303U030V4C?qs=sGAEpiMZZMtZ1n0r9vR22bNos12dWCDWPsAPy5duZ7Q%3D

    You can also use my Bridge Board to replace it.
    It has the big capacitor split into two 15,000uF more common capacitors.
    It also replaces the two bridge rectifiers and adds fuses to those lines.
    Goto my website http://www.inkochnito.nl and click on the Bridge Board image to read more about it.

    When the heck did Kemet start selling electrolytics?
    As far as I remember - they specialized in ceramics, film and tantalums.
    If mouser can sell them at $10 then surely I can do better. Just contacted them...

    Cornell Dubilier used to be my preferred source for screw terminal caps. But when they raised the price from $3.50 to about $15 for one cap... that was it.

    Thanks for all the replys. It doesn't need changing apparently,but I was looking for a possible replacement since all the boards have been changed and a new cap would top of all componites in the backbox. And also wasn't giving 55.00 for it unless it really did need changing. All this info is great,and Inkochnito is always cool to work with !
