@hodgey literally posted here asking for confirmation before taking a soldering iron to my incredibly valuable TBC-1000 (as an investment it's appreciated more than most stocks!):
I'll be taking the small cap out and checking it to see if its 'aged' much and drifted out of spec. Hopefully it'll serve as an indicator whether the other caps on the unit are okay.
The big power caps are totally gone though by the looks of it, will also measure those and report back.

Okay, removed and measured the old caps on the power board. The small one should give an indication of how much life is left on the rest of the capacitors on the other boards in the TBC.
The 1000uf caps on the power board were totally shot and measured around 300uf. Both had swollen tops, and one was bulging out the bottom.
The small Wendell 0.47uf cap measured fine though at 0.533uf so resoldered that back.
