Do to many queries, i crawled over many pallets of capacitors to get the
50kv 7.1uf 8875joules aerovox
65kv 2.3uf 4800j "
60kv 1.8uf 3300j "
all are low inductance types (e.g. 40 nH) 11x14x25" tall 220 lbs . these
are typical specs as every cap has a little different capacity.
20kv 14.2uf 2850joules 0.035uH inductance sangamo
130 lbs 7 1/2x14x24" tall
there are also a few odd ones. a few have mineral oil instead of castor oil
most of the 50-65kv caps have quite rusty cases thanks to the military leaving
them out in the rain before the auction.

anyone going to san francisco to see greg's giant tesla coil can drop by to
see the caps three doors away at the shipyard.
