Craftsman compressor only runs on one leg

Hi my 6 hp craftsman oiless compressor with little use (hours), is running on one leg.

I noticed one Capacitor had the oil leaked out of it, its been sitting a while, and i misplaced the Capacitor.

I had a old 220 motor laying around so i tried the Capacitor from it - don't know if its the right one to use - but i tried it it worked till it cycled off then it wouldn't work again.

Is it the wrong capacitor or is the motor problem killing the Capacitor? Thanks for any help John
