One of them has the following.

pointing to one of the wires coming out of the Capacitor.
The capacitor physically is a big cap, about 1 1/2 inches long and the wires
are at oposite ends like a resistor, instead of the normal out of the
bottom for an electrolytic cap. eg --(00000)-- (do they call this a radial
No. Axial, because leads are on axis of cylinder. The radial form
does not actually have the leads along radius, but exit through a
radial (or diameter) line.
Here are my questions?
I asume that this is a 100 uF Cap. No rocket science there.
But I guess I have not seen the notation of 0-160VDC.
I asume that this is just a different way of saying what I
normaly see which is 16v or 25v or 100v.
Right. Any DC up to 160 volts is okay.
And I asume that this IS an electrolytic CAP even though
normally what Im use to seeing is the >>>> pointing to the
Negative side of the wire and both the wires coming out of
the bottom of the Cap.
Right. Just another form of electrolytic.
