Could someone help me find out what value these four capacitors are? 

Screen Shot 2017-11-10 at 12.48.39.jpg

 

I'm trying to install a stereo Pokey and the previous owner of my 800XL (which turned out to be quite the frankentari) has recapped it,  using huge tantalum caps that are so big I cannot get the pokey board to seat without a liftoff; if I use a liftoff I can't get the case to close so I need to change the caps. 

 

Thanks!

Can't you fold them to one side ?

I'd say, just desolder them and read the Cxx number underneath. Then check the schematics and see what value they should be.

Or you have a look at Sam's computer facts for the 800XL, see they are in sections I23 and J23, look them up in the table, which shows they are C63 to C66.

Then you check the schematics in the same document, look in the area of POKEY and find they are all .047 caps.

Nope, one leg is soldered to the board so tight they hardly move, then the other leg is stretched to the other hole. For the next cap the positions are reversed. :/
