Default Replacing Large Electrolytics

I had 3 faulty electrolytics; all 30V/5500uF. In my spares bin I found 6
NOS (new old stock) electros of values 35V/3300uF which when stacked 2
high and wired in parallel occupy - fortunately - the same footprint as
the ones that failed.
These spares, though unused, are probably 40 years old. Will they need re-
forming gradually over 24hrs before installing?
