I've been changing some capacitors in an SM 124 lately as i found 2 to be dried up and open
A couple of the caps are very long (4 cm) but most modern day replacements are half that length, the 2 caps are a 470uf x 35V and a 1000uf x 25V
These are usually 2 long orange or yellow caps on the SM 124 PCB near the rear of the monitor
What i wanted to know is, is it ok to use these modern day shorter caps? is there a reason why these 2 particular caps on the SM 124 PCB are long? and if so what is the reason for that?
In the picture below the original cap is the orange one and new cap is the brown one
