Oil cap questions

Pat FOil cap questions
I remember some time ago, R.G., I think made some remarks about the large oil filled caps being good for tube amp power supplies. I found cases of these things at a local electronics salvage place. Most of them are 16uf, rated 480 VAC? These are new and they want $3.00 each for them. My question is, if they are rated 480 VAC, what does that translate to in VDC? And are there any premade mounting type clamps for these? They are quite large.
