Another vote for mouser.com, they've always treated me right.  jameco.com and partsexpress.com are also good places depending what you need.

Thanks guys. All the caps I'm finding have much smaller packages. Am I searching for the wrong kind of cap? (aluminum electrolytic) or are they just made smaller these days? Do I have to rig up a new mount?

Technology advanced a lot :tu:, they are much smaller and just as good as old ones :).
You'll have to find a new way of mounting.
Purists will hate me, but I often use transparent silicone sealant to glue them to the chassis in some handy place, since the originals were not PCB mounted anyway but used metallic clamps.
After 24 hours rest (or at least overnight) they are safely mounted, and the sealant provides some shock mounting to boot.
Only silicone sealant or a lot of contact cement, the idea is that the adhesive stays somewhat elastic.
Do not use superglue or epoxy, they are rigid and unattach on the first bump.
