    Does anyone know what a replacement part number would be for the condensers on the 1947 Evinrude Zephyr (4404)? The end of the old one I have says 2MFD and my parts manual from 1947 says 201484 however I am not seeing results

    201484 is a good part number, maybe No Longer Available.
    2 MFD is the capacity in Microfarads. Actually .2 (point 2), not 2

    Very common capacitor is .22MF …. from my experience you should be able to use about any common capacitor and your motor will be OK. There has been extensive discussion here about substituting modern metal foil capacitors, try doing a search. .22 MF will work in most cases.

    Mumbles,
    Are you there to remind me on my research on caps?

    I will Jeff. Good job! Now maybe someone can post a link to that discussion. Jim

    Thanks everyone! I was able to purchase new old stock of P/N 201753 which is the longer wire condenser

    Tubs,
    Bet that cap would be the same for the 272, 292, & 312 the T-bird mtr. Maybe a 58 big block 332, early 390 block. Remember those??? I had a 57 Ranch station wagon, the two door version. Put a 1965 Mercury engine 390, trans & pumpkin even fit the axle splines. Stopped for a school bus & was rear ended. It was totaled……Now I am a old guy like the one who hit me. It was a fun build though!!!

    Before installing this NOS capacitor, it should be checked for its capacitance value as caps (condensers) do go bad over time whether they are being used or not. If it tests out of range or is leaking internally, club member Jeff Register working along with Digi-Key engineers came up with replacement modern axial film capacitors which can stand up to the beating a magneto gives them.

    They are available in various uF ratings but 10, 15, and 22 uF caps can be used together to get the desired capacitance. If mounting is a problem, they can also be installed in the original can after it has been hollowed out.

    Here’s some links to the Vishay .10, .15, and .22 uF caps:

    Jeff is my ( our) capacitor hero ! Can’t tell you how many motors those modern foil caps have brought back to life… and the .22mf size seems to be abut universal
