Ranger I hv cap, resistors

The 10mfd @ 750vdc cap in the hv supply finally dried up. I have a
10 @ 600 in my box, but since there's close to 600vdc at that point
already I'm too worried about what power on/off spikes might do to
it so I'd rather not leave it to chance. I can't seem to find any
axials rated any higher than 600vdc so a pair of 20's at 450 each
in series should do nicely. Any opinions on value of resistors to
use across the pair to balance the voltage?
