Capacitor replacement

I am having a hard time sourcing a replacement for one of the capacitors in my 16A. Any help would be appreciated. it’s a 4uf 600v can type with a screw base to mount it. I can leave it in the chassis for aesthetics and replace it with a different capacitor underneath, but all I have found in the same spec is a polypropylene film capacitor. Can I use that?  any other ideas would be great. This one is measuring 8.4uf. It’s bad. …See More

"The higher value domino type capacitors in the Metropolitan 16A expander circuit are really wax paper capacitors, at least in the Metropolitan 16A set that I restored. Norman"

Scott Seickel replied to jonathan dollimore's discussion Caps under Coil shields on Philharmonic?
"When you say the mica caps were out of spec, were they just measuring low?  Did you test for leakage?  Just curious as I don't find too many that are out, but leakage in these is becoming more common as the silver migrates. "
