    What techniques are available for mounting axials when you have used
    them to replace radial type capacitors? Anyone have photos of
    creative ways to achieve this replacement? Sounds like a common
    enough problem, but I can't find anything on the net, in particular
    images, that might show approaches.

    This seem obvious enough.... but it depends on the physical space available.
    The really apparent way to do this is to mount them on one end with the
    other (usually negative) longer wire (insulate it) going back down to the
    PCB. If it is not long enough you can fix that with a jumper wire splice.

    Silly question maybe, but why not replace with like with like in the first
    place ?
