don't know if that mc250 is stock, but if it is, those are some 30+ year old electrolytic capacitors in there and should have been swapped out 15/20 years ago. you more then likely only need to swap out the electrolytics in there, and may consider sending the multi section cap can out to frontier electronics for a servicing before everett retires. the other single cap can, can be bought at audio classics. if your doing the job yourself, SOLDER SUCKER AND SOLDER WICK are your friend. those pads will lift if you heat them up too much. so be in and out as much as possible with the heat.
replacing those caps with better quality, longer lifespan new ones will get you another 30+ years out of that amp.
