    Hello,
    Just like to know how to find out the value of capacitance I need for a capacitor start 5hp 230v motor.
    I tried e-mailing the manufacturer, but no response.
    Thanks for your help and time.

    i think it wuld have to be really big.
    it should have to have 230v and mabey a 1J cap or more.

    look for other email addresses for the manufacture or call them. call is usually the best thing to contact them.
