Probably should not look at these as a "slot 1 or slot 2" position. Even though i realize it can be looked at it like that, the important thing is to look at the individual high voltage supplies these caps are a part of and ensuring you have those wired up correctly. Changing the filter cap can from a deluxe to a twin supply, as you know, have some differences. You will have to look at your schematics of both amps to compare the differences and use a continuity meter to find out where each supply goes to. This will tell you how to layout and wire that can up properly. Double and triple check your work as well as test voltages when done or else you will lose some fuses, and probably will learn why they put those things in a separate can.
Extreme caution needs to be taken when messing

Replace the 0.1 uf with a 0.47uf 225p. Replace the 0.47 uf with a 0.33uf 225p. And finally ...replace the ceramic disc with a Silver Mica 22 pf.
I think it sounds great, and it's a cool intermediate step before you decide to add the mid-pot. Or just play it if you like it.
Personally...I think my deluxe is going to get the SS rectifier. My 5U4 socket is woogity, so it might be time.
