Hope all of you are having a good fall boating season. I am forced to replace my bilge blower. Finally gave it up after 50 years of operation :) I noticed that the bilge blower and the wiper motors have a small cylinder attached on the hot side. Does anyone know if these are start capacitors or filters for the old AM/SSB radios?
Take care and thanks for your reply's
Those are for noise suppression. I had a crusty one hanging in my bilge pump circuit that I removed when I replaced my bilge pump. The new bilge pump motor is internally suppressed so no need for the external filter.
Thanks Lee and John
