Can someone tell me the uF value of the Sprague SBE418P400V capacitor the vendors sell? And will the SBE418P500V be suitable for replacement. I have several of the 500 Volt version,

The 500V rating should be fine.

You need to check all the numbers on the SBE418P500V caps you have.
Look at the link below and notice the photo of an SBE 418P cap on the right. SBE is the name of the manufacturer, 418P is the manufacturers capacitor model number. 500V is the dc working voltage. The number 1039 is the manufacturers date code.
Most important 474K is a capacitance value of .47UFarad.
The 418P cap with a capacitance of .47uFarad with a either a 400V or 500V rating is the correct capacitance and has a sufficiently high DV/DT rating suitable for use as a replacement capacitor for a Model T Ford ignition coil.
