Dumb Cap Job Question

LonzoDumb Cap Job Question
Semi-Noob question...I searched the forum for an answer but could not find another thread about this. Sorry if I'm wasting time but I guess I'm really stupid and can't figure this one out....  
I'm trying to replace the caps (coupling & tone)in a couple of my amps (Laney VC30 & Bedrock BC50) with Orange Drops and the leads are too big to fit through the PC board. I'm sure I bought caps with the same voltage value and same uf value, but the leads are larger in diameter than their Chinese & Korean counterparts.  
I'm hesitant about making the holes larger in fear of opening a trace, but if that's the answer, I'm dremel ready.  
Any help is always appreciated.  

Chuck You can start by fluxing the holes,... -- 5/17/2005 7:09 PM
