Am I right in thinking those capacitors are for filtering DC current(as most large capacitors are)?
If this is the case, replacing it with a higher or equal capacitance rated for a higher or equal voltage, installed with the same polarity should work.(big capacitors are usually electrolyte caps, which need to be using the same polarity for durabillity, for those metallic jar type capacitors it's polarity is usually marked with a black triangle on the top over one of the legs, I *think* the marked side is the is the positive side).
