Thanks I will bring them over some time . I was beginning to think that there was another fault in the set causing this but these green caps are unreliable.

As flyback tuning capacitors there will be considerable strain on the dielectric, mechanical strain in fact and that's why those capacitors get hot.

In my opinion there is no reason to bin them, they may be perfectly fine for other use in lesser circuit positions and certainly out of the high pulse condition of the line stage. ]

Rebel Rafter wrote:Hi, folks, RR here. I've found some exact replacements for the 5n2, just take a look on vintageparts.com, they've got some, 188 in stock at 95p each. 5%, 1500v. Sorry I don't know how to make a link but they're easy to find, just go on the site and type in 5N2 in the search box. I hope this helps. They've also got some visconol's, .001uF. RR.
