I am trying to track down a replacement capacitor that is used in 1970-1971 automotive low fuel relay to illuminate a warning light based on the signal from the fuel sending unit. This one initially tested ok, but not when under any load.
As photo shows, cap has a red stripe, and marked .5±29%85° C 200V900
Appreciate any assistance, as caps from this era are clearly at (or exceeding) expected life span.
Hello bpounds986, welcome to the Forum community. The closest we have to the .5uf value in 200V is .47uf 200v. These are the stocking options . If you wanted to go with an axial leaded type, the closest to the value that we have in stock is 1.5uf, 500D155M200BB5A-ND. You can compare sizes and see which option would be most appropriate for your application.
Thanks! I’ll do some checking, but the first option looks like a possibility. May order some of those to experiment for functionality. Amazingly prompt reply! Kudos!
