I need to replace all the ~40 year old electrolytic caps in an old amp

I asked before but no one knew, so I asked some other people, and none of them knew, so now I'm asking you guys again

How the fuck am I meant to read this? uF/V, V/uF? nF? pF?

My guess would be 100uF 40V, especially considering the size of the thing.

ROE stands for Roederstein
german made caps, looking up similar products it seems >>640011 is correct it should be 100uf at 40v

their labeling seems to be uF/V

Bullshit. I was in that thread, and I told you exactly what all of those symbols mean. Go find the thread in the archive and re-read it.

Also, lol at that guy who got all spock on describing that capacitor in the previous thread.

I do... for my tube amps. Nice Western Electric 's from the 1950's are built like tanks-M1 Abrams Tanks... still in spec.
