Re: Starting a Teletype sync motor question
My teletype motor uses a cap marked "88-108 MFD, 125VAC 60 cycles", a
curious rating. It measures 137 uF on my c-meter. It seems to be very
lightweight for it's capacitance compared with other motor starting caps
I've seen, perhaps because it's only rated for very low duty cycles.
Maybe the cap you're using is too small?

That's most interesting. Never heard of a TTY sync motor using an
electrolytic starting capacitor, which is what you are referring to!
What kind of TTY?
