    Hi everyone,I just joined and a novice.I'm rebuilding a 1969 bosch cdi.I'm replacing the 1.5uF storage cap.My problem is mounting it.the old (obsolete) one is 40Lx22dia.metal can with a curved L bracket attached to it for mounting thru the case with a rivet.Of course the modern poly.replacement 28mmx22mm is quite different.Do I have to worry about wrapping something around it to mount?heat dissapation?It can only go back where the old one was under the PCB.Any ideas are greatly appreciated.

    You'll want to get the correct replacement capacitor, such as This one Though it is out of stock at DigiKey.

    Check Mouser for "Flange Mount" or "Stud Mount" 1.5uF film capacitor to find the replacement you need.
