I agree I would leave the axial caps alone unless you see crusted leaking from them. I have a SE I opened up 2 years ago, caps looked fine so I left it alone, however I did lube the floppy drive eject mechanism, that would be a good idea if you still have it apart. ditto the pram battery, vartas were the better pram batteries along with tadiran. luckily its not a maxell as ive had one ruin a centris 610 by spilling its guts all over the logicboard.
Thanks for the link and the advice, I've got the battery and holder on order to replace the original, as well as a replacement fan which is whining pretty bad.
