AC motor Capacitors

  1. Oct 26, 2006 #1
    I picked up a good and cheap AC motor that came with its own capacitors <not wired in though>
    The capacitors are these
    and this is the diagram on the motor
    http://foxhole.kicks-ass.net/diagram.jpg" [Broken]
    Now I tried putting this together but with no luck at all
    the motor doesn't seem tohave power at all even if i just straight hook it up without the caps.
    am I doing something completely wrong here?

    but I just got it working through trial and error
