I do not think ERO are particularly known for going bad, but like most makes when they get to this grand old age they most likely are not at their best.

I personally would go for Polypropylene, they are often yellow and often rated at 630 volts, they will probably be physically smaller than your 250 volt ones. Depending upon where the 750 volt ones are used, the 630V rated ones maybe fine, I have used 630V ones in place of 1,000V rated ones on output transformers with no problems.

Often they have to be brought in minimum quantity of 5 or 10.

Loads of sources like Farnell, RS, Cricklewood to name just 3, as well as many eBay sellers etc

One eBay seller example is (I am not connected) -
