Today I switched on an old Murphy Manor TAO 747 from my dad's collection. It's physical condition is pretty good. It produced hum and made a sparking sound and immediately I turned it off. After a minute powered it up again and same sound came, as I was observing itt, that was coming from the electrolytic capacitor from power supply section. It's 50 Mfd, 300V.

Where can I get it or can I replace with a newer one? Appreciate any suggestion. I guess that's the first step to fix this radio. From the picture, you can see the leakage and rusting of the chassis as well.
(unable to upload the pic. Need to compress it. Will upload later)

Got schematic and guidance from FM, Mr. Venkat, who has same model. Will try it out and post the results in couple of weeks. (need to go and get 47uF caps to replace)
