Also, the old cap cans in my amps are rated for 85 degrees centigrade (also seen some of these rated for 105 degrees centigrade)- can this 55 degrees centigrade rated cap can be used in my amps?

If your amp calls for 85 degrees then you will want to us a cap designed to handle 85 degrees. You may want to consult your schematic to confirm exactly what you need.
I have a Hallicrafters sx101a I am recapping. I need a 40-20-20 430 volt can I use the 40-20-20-20 525 volt by paralleling the 40 and 20 the use the other two 20's be them selves to get this.

If you only need the 40/20/20uf section then all you have to do is not use the 4th 20uf section. You do not need to use all 4 sections for this cap to work.
Does anyone have a photo or a pinout chart of these caps? Is there a common ground for all the sections or is the case used as ground? In all the images I've seen apparently no one has thought to show the business end. I need to know because I build amps with lift switches. Thanks!
The pins will have shapes assigned to each tab and the case is indeed the common ground for all sections. There are four inner and four outer tabs on the bottom of this cap, the inner four being the positive lugs while the outer four are the case connectors.
Princeton reverb 1164. Where does the 40uf section connect to? Center tap of OT? Please be specific as I am puzzled on this.
