    Or even better, order a few backup parts that were replaced. I've seen the guts of those pre-built panels. Hardly nothing to them.

    Just open the case and look at the original capacitors. The capacity and voltage rating should be printed on the cases.

    That is a price to move it. It is not a H model but a old HLV from the early 50's.
