Capacitor question
« on: September 03, 2019, 10:56:35 PM »
I think over finally got this radio figured out. Except for 2 more things. 1 is this cap. CAN NEG, do I just ground that to the chassis?  The other question I'll make a separate post for.

You can always check the schematic, if you have one, or do whatever  was done originally.  Some can caps are mounted right on the chassis, physically and electrically.  Some are mounted on a fiber insulating piece so the can is not grounded to the chassis, but connected by a wire from a can lug to wherever the negative is supposed to go.
