Replacing 0.1F 100V Ceramic Capacitor for Eros2
« on: April 17, 2021, 07:20:44 AM »
Hi-

I snapped a 0.1F 100V cap while assembling my Eros 2 kit. Can I use any replacement or does it have to be a Z5U? Do I need to wind the lead with the other one that goes through the 23U or can I just connect it separately with a good connection to the 23U plate?

Thanks much!!!!! Michael

The Z5U is the desired part, I would pause your build and order up a replacement from replacementparts(at)bottlehead(dot)com.
