Hi Bart,

Motor run caps are fine for the phase shifter.  PFC caps are
fine also.  The electrolytic motor start caps should be avoided
because they'll probably explode.  Usually the proper types
are in a metal can.  The motor start caps are often in a 
black phenolic case, and are stamped with a value range.
