Subject: Blown Cap [Help]

I finished my new rsg and fired up the coil only to blow my
homemade flat plate cap.It
was a .03  cap .090 ldpe .I have decided no more home made
caps. my queston is for
a 14,400 pig teslac says to use a 36kv  a/c cap but in the
Maxwell line the are rated
dc. Would 75 kv dc be a good cap for 36 kv ac rating
