Quality of Run Capacitors

Hi Guys,
I just replaced the run capacitor in the outside unit. It always happens on the hottest day of the year.

Is it possible or advantageous to install an overrated capacitor? So maybe it will last forever?

If your system is over cycling it will stress the capacitor.

Try to find a name brand capacitor.
There are many poor quality off shore parts floating around.
