replacing fan motor on condensor unit

1404 4
when i purchased a fan motor from an ac supply house i was informed that i would need to change the cap from a 5 to 7.5. I had just installed a new 45mfd cap which was already in the unit. do I need to install a second one? and if so how do i wire it in? The motor I took out was a single phase 1/3 hp 1075 rpm 208-230 volt. the new motor has all the same numbers except the fact that it requires 7.5 cap.

You need to install capacitor that the new motor requires.

You do not need to use the old motor capacitor.

The 45 mfd cap you installed. Is it a dual cap. ie has 2 ratings like 45/5 mfd on it and 3 terminals. If so you need a 45/7.5 mfd dual cap.
