Welcome to the forums!

I have moved your post to it own thread. It is always better to start your own thread rather then piggyback on another one.

Do you have a wiring diagram? That is the name on the motor? Please post everything listed on the motor nameplate. A picture might help too.

The cap should be at least 240 volts

rpm 2850
Is this a gear motor? Seems a strange speed for a regular 60Hz motor. Is it a universal motor? What is it used on?

OOps you are in Australia I see. I missed that so your standard RPM may be different. Can you post a picture of the motor? http://www.doityourself.com/forum/li...-pictures.html

Seams to me that you might not need a cap. I would recommend contacting the manufacture of the motor for a diagram.
