Re: Somewhat Off-Topic -- Reversed Electrolytic Capacitor

To correct the reversed condition, I ordered a replacement Sprague TVL-1170 "new old stock" capacitor from a seller on eBay.  It arrived today, but ironically, is more or less open -- measuring about 0.01 mfd with a high dissipation factor.  I applied 15 V for an hour or so, but the capacitance did not increase.  I might just have to stick with the reversed capacitor and polarity.
