  • New combo motor capacitors

    I just completed changing out all our capacitors.

    The new caps do not have the proper threaded screw hole.

    The screw adaptor on the new caps is not a good fit.

    If you try to utilize the push on connector the wire length on some connectors is not long enough.

    I rewired all the caps wiring that needed it so I could change one in an emergency quickly.

    I used yellow #12 female connectors and twisted the wires inside before crimping.

    You could do a pair of lanes at a time and save some of your old capacitors for spares on lanes not converted.

      They are what you get when you order caps.

      Just imagine a male spade out of the end of a cap instead of a screw hole.

        Why do you need to change all your caps? Just wondering.

        Nice pics king. I am going to try and post one this weekend of a really odd looking call we had.

        And I knew what the problems was instantly! Belive it or not. [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/eek.gif[/img] [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif[/img]

          I changed them all due to 30 years of use.

          They all now have the push on terminals.

            They seem to work OK but I don't much care for them. Just getting old and set in my ways I guess.
