I know nothing of craftsman tools, but, if it is an oldy tool, you may find all that you need at I have a 72 unisaw and was able to find the complete parts list and user manual that came with the saw when new. Good luck.

I would check with the local motor repair shop. I think there is a lot of commonality for the capacitors used in motors. They may have just what you need.

You can spend time looking for a capacitor and having it installed or just replace the motor with a more efficient one, like a Leeson for about $150.00 dollars. Thats what I did with my 27520. I have never looked back since. I coupled this with machined pulleys, a link belt and a Freud blade. It has cut everything I put to it so far and sings doing it.

This link should help.

Check my project post, the motor , pulley and belt.
