Can a 25v 470MFD cylindrical (Unicon CE04L-2 leads at bottom) polar capacitor be replaced with a cylindrical polar 25v 470uf capacitor? I read a bunch of articles and think the answer is yes, MFD and Uf are the same, but I'd like to confirm before ordering. It will be used in a Kenwood AT-70 Audio Timer. The other 3 capacitors are labeled Uf.

The two values are identical, and I find MFD to be an entirely acceptable abbreviation for microfarad, and also using actual text instead of symbols provides a bit more clarity. Just be certain to get the polarity correct.
