    Dear All
    My first posting here.
    I desperately need help in identifying these components. I think they are Selenium Rectifiers. The bottom one I pulled apart and it is filled with two lots of discs separated by a helical spring in the middle between them. The end caps are temporarily held in by hot melt glue. I will glue the caps in permanently with epoxy resin adhesive.
    If they are Selenium Rectifiers, what can I use to replace them.
    Thanks for helping out
    Don

    probably a polarised capacitor of some sort ... possibly 16 uF

    Test with a meter- a capacitor will show up as an open circuit, a rectifier (if working) will only conduct one way. If they are selenium rectifiers (I have only ever seen them in "stacks" with a screw through the middle), Then a normal silicon diode of the correct rating can be used.
