Temperature rating, lifetime, low ESR. could be any number of things like that.

In addition to dknguyen's comments, it could simply be age. The newer capacitors are much smaller than those made years ago due to better tech.

It depends on the brand, Rubycon, Nichicon, Marcom and LRC are all good brands.

Anything made in Japan is also good, if it's a Chinese no brand capacitor then it might be good or cheap rubbish probably the latter.

Yeah that's what someone else was telling me also that different manufacturers use different materials so the caps are essentially the same but the only reason for the size difference is because some materials might be better than others so the size difference is needed to achieve the same result.

That's only good for pF ratings, want 1000:mu:F capacitor? It's much easier to buy it.

How large was the capacitor though?

Was it too heavy to lift?
