Do bring it up on a variac to help in the reforming process if you want to try and keep the old caps.So is mine, they are very good capacitors. I brought them up slowly then did a ripple test on them.
Power supply = 8.2V while drawing 5Amps with 620mV ripple.
Looked good enough for me. Last I checked, the drop out voltage of those 5V regulators was 7V.
