    Unless you are concerned with maintaining stock appearance, purchasing separate capacitors of appropriate rating would be just fine. Current capacitors are much smaller than ones from the era of your Knight, so there would be little problem fitting them onto your chassis.

    I always replace the multi-caps with far cheaper discrete electrolytics. I mount the modern caps under the chassis and leave the old can in place to retain the vintage look.
