Re: jtm45 reissue driver coupling caps rated at 250v ??
I've been selling OEM caps for years and most if not all film cap mfgs have long since been making caps rated at the dc plate voltage yet able to handle a lot of "swing". In the old days you had to add a fudge factor for peaks and transients - not anymore.  
If you've got a databook or catalogue listing film caps it might be worthwhile to check out the manufacturer's application description...
