Yes - Replace the "firecracker" style electrolytic caps.  There may also be some white electrolytics with a + written on one end - like maybe the one on the center control pot.  Replace any of those.  Also make sure that the AC supply is wired so the black wire from the cord goes to the tip of the fuse, then from the rim of the fuse to the switch, then to the transformer, then back to the white wire on the AC cord.

Amplified parts also has small electrolytic caps.
