    Need help with start capacitor specs, drill press

    I have a Kingston-Conley motor on a Craftsman drill press, model 113.24590. The start capacitor appears to be bad.

    The specs on the motor are:
    Frame 11-8 C H.P. 1/2
    Type K.B Cycles 60
    Volts 110/220 Phase 1
    Rpm 1725 amps 8/4
    Serial # 70h1009692
    I can't read all the numbers off the bad capicitor, it's scratched off.
    Is this enough info to get a replacement capcitor. There is no mention in the user manual. Any ideas would be appreciated.

    Start caps are a generic thing. Most likely yours was / is in the 135 - 150 MFD range, 110 volt. Have access to an old Kenmore washer? There is a start cap hiding either in control panel, or mounted on motor that is in this range.

    Any motor shop should be able to advise, get a capacitor for you, or repair it.
