Ferroresonant transformer supply repair

Has anyone replaced the capacitor in a ferroresonant power supply with much
success? My current understanding is that the capacitor and transformer are
mated as a pair, so replacing just one of them would require careful

The PDP-8/I I'm working on has a 704A in it, with a GE 8uF 660V capacitor.
It measures a couple of nF on my capacitor meter, and I was told by the
previous owner that it's dead.

Any advice?
