I think I've determined those two wires are for the power saver, which appears to be mounted to the house, but those wires are just loose, not even capped. Is there a way to hook them up, or are they not connected because a component/wire is missing?
I also found the start capacitor leaking oil, so that is going to be replaced shortly. I am thinking about replacing the currently installed start capacitor:
MADE IN U.S.A.
Airstar Supply 145-175 MFD 330V Electric Motor Start Capacitor
This replacement does not have a bleeder resistor; so I plan to buy a properly rated resistor and solder it to the contacts myself.
Are there any issues with this plan?
Thanks for any assistance!
