* Well , I visited the neighbor , his compressor motor is also a 6 hp
Doerr motor so I borrowed his 189-230something start cap to test . My
motor spun up just fine with the belt off but wouldn't quite go with a
load . So I went to town and bought 2 , one at 243-292 and one at
340-408 . It will start under load with the smaller one ,

start under load? You dont have an unloader on your compressor???

* Yes of course there's an unloader on it - in fact the tank was empty
this morning . But it was also 26° outside this morning , and there is a
load just from friction and cold oil . This compressor has always
started a little slow in cold weather , sometimes tripping the internal
overload . I usually leave it off unless I need it during the really
cold spells .
