My Heath capacitor tester has a leakage tester.  The capacitance 
range selector is frozen, but the the leakage tester is very useful 
for reforming electrolytics.  I like to not replace electrolytics 
until I get the equipment running and see where I stand.  If you work 
on yours, check the resistors in the voltage range switch.
