After initial recapping of this Ward Airline radio, it exhibited signs of silver mica disease.  Attempting my first repair on an IF Transformer, I have some questions which I hope you can help me with

1.  The schematic shows two mica caps but only gives one overall value 250mmf  which covers both.  How can I determine the individual values I should use for my two replacement caps? 120 pf each? 

2. Removing the internal componets to get to the original mica caps, I made a rooky mistake and broke one of the two fine wires that run up the side.  The wire gage is very fine.  Should I solder a replacement length of wire I have available (24 Ga) or is there another way to properly repair this?

Thanks and I hope you can help me.
