André,

Starting off as a poor student, and having remained in that state ever since, I have occasionally fixed/soldered these back on - depending on how they came off, one can mostly expose enough wire to make a good soldering joint and glue the caps back on. But experience is needed!

Where are you - Oh! I think you are in the Cape .... not near here (Pretoria). Still, if you can get them up here ... Success of the venture will depend on how the caps came off so no guarantee. But since otherwise you will be discarding them ... They are possibly obtainable from Mr Valve (he will curse me if I phone him now) but will be expensive. Let me call him at a more reasonable hour.
Audio must be the only branch of engineering where lack of basics' knowledge is considered a superior form of wisdom. (Anon)

Many thanks Ampdog,if i recall correctly we tried Mr Valve but with no success(i could be wrong though)....thank you for your efforts sir.The amp is at a friends place,i will check and see regarding the topcaps,i just assumed the valves needed replacing perhaps they are salvageable....
