One of my hardware engineers here at my day job said it was to strengthen the casing ;)

Bring 'er up slow, Greg.

Those caps should have been shipped with a wire across the leads. Discharge them before you handle them.

How did you get on with installing the new caps?

I've just had an 8001 go down and am looking into replacing the power caps as an option.
Which ones did you go for and do they fit/work as expected?

Sorry I missed this. The new caps worked great - once the rectifiers were replaced. It's likely the failed rectifier is what caused the cap to blow.
