Long and expert experience with Collins amateur equipment tells us to limit the reforming current to FIVE MILLAMPS.
Take your time. Monitor cap voltage and reforming current. Be patient.
I have a Heath variable bench supply - DC variable from about 0 to 300 volts or so, I use a 10k or 5K, 5 or 10 watt resistor in series. The current meter on the supply lets me keep reforming current low, and a separate voltmeter shows me the caps progress.
Do not follow the procedure given in the MIL-HANDBOOK on reforming electrolytics. There is real danger of disaster doing that (Parallel many caps, reform them with a light bulb series with a DC supply, limiting current to the total for all caps.)
