Hitachi capacitor leaking

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Needs some help.  The capacitor on my Rex sewing machine motor is leaking.  I need to replace it.  Unfortunately the nonminclatur on capacitor is missing.

Motor plate reeds:

Hitachi 1/3 hp clutch motor
Amps 3.7
60 cycle
110 volts
Sn E683758
Cap 16F
Model x
 
I am assuming this if 16 microfard capacitor..
I am thinking it is a run capacitor.
 Does that sound correct?  Any suggestions on where to purchase capacitor?
 
Thanks for any help

I would buy this 5-pack of capacitors:

And then use 3 in parallel.

Too risky for what that old motor is worth.
