I'm not sure why you're saying that. Considering those caps are about 35 years old, I think it's quite important to refresh with new ones.

I "works" and will work also after a recap.

 If it's working, I'd
 leave it alone.  Capacitors just don't fail as much as
 people think they do.  If you fanny about with the insides,
 you have a greater risk of damaging something than improving
 it.

 Won't make the tiniest bit of
 difference.
