Make sure whatever you use can handle the CURRENT!!! Voltage is important, but so is CURRENT. I had some silver micas blow up in my Valiant a few years ago. Replacement single 1000 volt ones blew up when I put them in there. To handle the current I had to make up two banks of two in parallel and then hook these two banks in series. This method held in there and could handle the current.

Maybe this link will work, it is for Just Radios and he has the 350 pf 500 V
He has the others but they are only 1KV. Maybe someone here will turn up
with something, barring that people have been using doorknob caps rater for
RF. I don't know where they are getting those but they are around and
someone will know.
This old Valiant, which has probably been through many hands before me, has
been modified dealing with the AUX fixed loading caps and nothing is
original. Infact, all the AUX caps have been replaced by military type high
voltage mica's of various sizes and values. I would like to return it to
somewhat original, but know that "stacked 3 section cap" is surely not
available anymore, so would go with single cap wiring. These caps are the
1200v SM caps in 300, 600, 900 and 1200pf values. Also the 4-350/500v SM
caps (series/parallel) are missing. Where can I find a source for these
caps? Any help and suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
