Just rec’d my two stroke kit. Its my first build, and am learning as I go. After checking all my components, I found that one of my electrolytic caps has higher voltage rating than spec’d on the paperwork; the 8uF/450 V cap is listed in ppwk, but I rec’d a 8uF/475 V cap. Is this higher voltage an issue?
Ive been reading Dave’s book, and watching Uncle Doug, etc…so I am still learning. (I do recognize the dangers of high voltages stored up in Cap’s, and know how to discharge them safely). The guts of amps are beginning to look less like a collection of jelly beans, tootsie rolls, Christmas lights, and shiny bits. Anyway, I’m just beginning to lay all my parts out, do more reading, and maybe I’ll answer my own question…Thanks in advance for any wisdom you guys can share!
