    ALWAYS discharge the high-voltage capacitor first if you even think your hands will come close to any HIGH VOLTAGE components.

    Jeff mentions this: Anything in the high voltage ( magnetron, capacitor, diode, wires to and from ):
    ...Use a metal ( not the shiny chrome type ) screw driver with a insulated handle to short across ( touch both at the same time ) the terminals of the high voltage capacitor to discharge it.

I have a Sharp R-520LK microwave that I have successfully disassembled and needs a new Magnetron. I found that I could not purchase the part through Sears. It reads as follows on the part:
RV-MZA332WRZZ
2M167B-M51
K68 - 027877 1 RC 1

I just want to verify the correct part to replace it. The one below is what I found on the parts website that I had been directed to from you on my oven.

I also need a new waveguide cover and maybe some paint because it looks like some of the paint is worn off where it was sparking. Also trying to decide if buying a new one is not a better option so if there is a good and cheep place to purchase one you recommend please let me know.
Thanks so much for your time.
