The Kickstart capacitor bubbles out fluid when I press the contactor button/plunger. I priced an identical new capacitor and they are not cheap. The cheapest one I saw was around $180. The part# is 5162718 or KSTS324 or HC95DE042

324-356MFD
330VAC

I found a cheaper one on the Grainger website for alot less.
But, the specs are not identical. The specs are:

216-259MFD
330VAC
Made by Packard #44ZU51 $17.20 This one has a resistor soldered into the terminals like the Kickstart Capacitor.

I also found one with the following specs:
DAYTON

Round Motor Start Capacitor,300-360 Microfarad Rating,330VAC Voltage Item # 2MEP7 $55.50. This one does not have a resistor soldered into the terminals.

Can one of these or some other capacitor be used as an alternative to the original Kickstart capacitor?

Thanks very much

Also, I have searched for the relay for the kit, but I can't find it other than purchasing the Kickstart kit #HC95DA401

It is a 5-2-1 relay. Can I just get another 5-2-1 relay from some other kit? I ask because other kits I see have a 5-2-1 relay for much cheaper. So, in other words I would like to replace the capacitor with an alternative to the expensive Kickstart one and source the relay elsewhere for cheaper. Thanks for any advice.

One more thing... The COMM STATUS amber light is blinking. It blinks 6 times and pauses and then repeats.

I fixed it with this:

5-2-1 Compressor Saver CSRU3 Hard Start Capacitor For 4-5 Tons.
