Yes you do and the Orange ones were indeed ROE (Roderstein) and all the 
rest were Philips. Since I took this picture I cut the very large one 
(100uf/450V) open with my Dremel out of curiosity and it was still wet.

No, I don't have the means but I want to replace my Dad's old Fluke with 
a newer DMM this year. I'll put them in the 'broken' drawer and if my 
new one has a capacitance test, I'll test them then, but I'll probably 
be a few months!
