I received prompt replies and merchandise. I have not had an opportunity yet to test the capacitors which I purchased, to provide quantitive evaluation of the items, but when I do, I will post again.
RCI 2950 / 2970 / 2990 / 2527 (EPT295013Z) electrolytic capacitor kit
One simply cannot go wrong with Klondike Mike. The time he saves us all is well worth it to me! Thank you!
These kits are great and have never let me down.
The caps are a good brand, not some cheap crap, and the contents are well documented. I'm very happy with the purchase.
After the recap I have my radio to what it was operating like 30 years ago. It was time for sure. Just ordered 2 more cap kits. One for my Cobra 142 GTL and the second is for an old IC 735. I am hoping to revive both these old radio's as well. I have book marked the Klondike web site. Cheers and 73.
was my first time purchasing, from mike's, My social media FB request for radio help, all the groups, ALL refer me to purchase at Klondike Mike. I did, timely shipping ( crazy fast for a Canadaian post to USA!). extremly happy! they provided directions and maps of of all items! u will need internet and a printer to use it, or screen shot..keeps it SIMPLE ! I WILL ORDER AGAIN! They EVEN answered my requests for future radio repairs, and answered fast, even on weekend! awesome people!!!
Good quality parts, but missing the most important cap. I understand that it is no longer pro curable, there is a 35v replacement that is 10000 mf more, but would work fine meeting form, fit and function.
Klondike Mike's TS 430s recap kit is very complete. I like that all caps are rated at and more likely above OEM working voltage. As is indicated, when ordering, not all caps are applicable or a perfect match for every radio. For information sake and perhaps this specific kit could be improved by one change in 2 of the caps. The power switching unit in the TS 430s has 2 filter caps that are also included in the kit. These caps in the kit are the right capacitance and are higher working voltage (which I find as a great aspect of this kit), however they are physically too big. The OEM caps fit very tight against each other and the physically bigger kit caps will not fit the board or in the space the board is mounted. Overall, I am very pleased with the kit, the service, and the shipping time. Of 116 capacitors in the kit I was able to use 113. The 3 not used were the 2 previously mentioned and 1 electrolytic on the IF board that needs to be Bipolar.
All the caps in one kit. Good value.
Very responsive customer service and quality components.
Working good well worth the money
I don't have the test equipment to align the radio so I couldn't recap most of it.
Just what I needed
