  • Jap A-2 Electrical System

    I had a capacitor go out on a machine today and I just happened to have a spare. When I went to get the part # to order another one, I got the # ok then when I went to check the price the book says its obsolete. So my question is if I don't need it, how do I wire past it, and if I do need it where do I get it and what kind should I be looking for? Eric

    Young Gun,

    The capacitor is needed to prevent the Magnetic Clutch microswitch contacts from pitting. I would suggest that you try Radio Shack and see if they have a Cap of the same MFD and voltage recommended.
