Default Macintosh SE Capacitor replacements?

I'm currently working on disassembling my Macintosh SE FDHD. I would like to recap it. I've heard it's recommended to recap the analog board and the power supply, is it also recommended to recap the logic board? Also, does anyone have a capacitor list and maybe recommended replacements? I'm not familiar with what the Macintosh SE FDHD requires, but I have no issue with the actual process of replacing capacitors.

I found this thread https://68kmla.org/forums/index.php?...d-be-recapped/

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.
