Capacitor replacement

I have an AireFlo AFAIR10B36 AC unit.
As it's hitting 11 years old this year I thought I would order the contactor and capacitor for this unit so I would have them on hand.
When I ordered the capacitor I got an oval or egg shaped unit and when I pulled the cover off the capacitor as built is round.
There is room for the wider part and I hate doing returns.
So rather than chasing another capacitor what's the solution, just make a mounting bracket to accommodate the newer style capacitor?

As long as the ratings are the same....yep...a little perforated metal plumbing strap...or even some heavy duty zip ties and yer good to go.

OK, that is what I was thinking and yes the ratings are correct. I ordered the part number specified but they substituted on me in the order.
Not worth returning to me so I will just use the one they sent me.
