Sidenote; i recap all my 68k mac’s analog+logic boards. 

To get software onto my mac’s i use a combination of a RaspberryPi 4 with a RaSCSI interface and a SCSI2SD. I can advice the ‘newbies’ under us to go with the RaSCSI device. It can do multiple tasks like providing you with a ethernet card.

Console5 sells kits for the US market. But they keep a Wiki page with the values/capacitorlistings on there.

Keep in mind that the US versions of the mac’s are different with the EU versions. Some power supply’s may differ.
