This was a really good description on how to do it. I will look into this
method unless I find something else.

I maybe wasn't clear on that I already replaced the cap with a few simple
leaded types. It was not such a good fit mechanically so although I am not
fanatic of preserving the innards of the machine it would very good to have
cap with the original type of pin layout.
