Motor is missing one capacitor. It was removed by the previous owner. One is present. It is 15 uf. Could someone pull the numbers off of the other capacitor? Motor p/n is 160-0121, (Magnetek 8-165482-21) Thank you.

The running capacitor is 15mfd and the starting capacitor is 145-175mfd

220V?

Just guessing, but it's the start cap, so less critical than 15mf run cap.
A 200 to 300 mf 240V should work ok.

Good luck.
