There are capacitors with screw terminals. May take a while to find one or: Most tab connect capacitors have a hole in the tab for a female terminal that has a lock on it that locks in that hole. Perhaps one could drill that hole out a bit and use a self tapping screw and an internal or external lock washer. There are others on here who may have a better idea.

They make a terminal that is a 90 degree that has male quick connect to screw terminal so you could get going with a modern cap and keep your ring terminal wires. Little hard to find but check with good appliance parts place, preferably a large store not just an appliance dealer.

Ken I totally forgot about those terminals and it hasn't been but a couple of months I had to use one installing a cap in one of my freezers. I don't guess 72 years has anything to do with not remembering them.
