Hi,
I brought an old CDE AR-22R rotator and control box.
I need to replace a capacitor in the control box, but i cannot find a replacement. I have pictures on my website:

Can anyone help?
Many thanks

It's called a motor-start capacitor, and is non-polarized; note the A.C. Voltage rating.  
    You should be able to obtain a replacement from a shop that repairs appliances or rebuilds electric motors.  It's often the first part that goes bad on these rotators; the mechanical parts last much longer.

Readily available motor start capacitor most electrical supply or parts store.  Malin in UK should have.

If you require a look-a-like .. contact Bill Turner in St. Louis who does exact reproductions and "re-stuffs".
