Photo Kohler 800A21 Capacitor

I have posted my 800A21 previously, But I am in need of a 120v AC 0.75mfd capacitor that blew up in the controller for this generator. I am having trouble locating one and any help is appreciated.

The generator is nearly completed and ready for shows. All it needs is the capacitor, and a Carb rebuild at this stage. I decided to leave the paint original for now. The electric choke is the only thing that is non functional but the thermostatic choke seems to work ok. I am attaching a video link, it wouldent produce power with the generators cover on before but after repairing some wireing it works fine now and runs like a swiss watch.

This is without question my favorite antique genset I own and I really want to get that bad capacitor replaced so I can use the generator again.
Thanks again.

If this cap will fit in the available space, it may work for you.
It is the correct capacitance with a higher max voltage.
That should not cause any problems.
