I had a chassis that I couldn’t find a schematic for and most of the capacitors we’re not readable on the cardboard tube. I’m not as proficient as I’d like, so I try not to guess. I took some very light oil, put it on my finger and rubbed it on a capacitor. A minute or two later, I could read the markings on the capacitor easily. Used the same process on the rest of the bypass capacitors and this worked well for me,
