HELP Building LA2a question?

    I am building an LA2a from the book "HOW TO BUILD A TUBE COMPRESSOR". I have one question through. On the C 7a-d, it appears as though he has replaced the can with four 47uF @450V electrolytic caps on the drawing. However, these caps are run to the C7a-d Can. But if you are replacing the C7a-d can with the four caps you wouldn't have the can.

    I can't see that

    C7 ... a/b/c/d
    all look to be in different parts of the circuit and I can;t see how you can sub ALL of them for a single larger cap.

    The original LA2 may well have had a single can that contained four separate capacitors.

    don't confuse this with a single large cap.

    They run to the can on the back of the chasis.
