and as you i am using three wire ground plug.  think that that there is just 
too much current leakage.  van, k7vs

   Am restoring a 500C. The power supply trips the GFI. Filter caps have 
been replaced. If the filtering circuit and caps have some slight inherent 
leakage, should I bypass or eliminate them? Use a 3 wire to 2 wire adapter 
plug at the wall? (I would prefer to keep it a 3-wire line.) Eliminate the 
GFI on that wall socket? Anyone been down this road before?
    Thanks in advance.
