I used a Vanguard BC-108 (108-130mfd 110-125VAC) to replace one of mine that
had leaked.  They shouldn't be hard to find.

The physical form factor is different (smaller), so they don't look like the
original equipment, though.  I just wrapped it in tape until the diameter
was sufficient for the original clamp :-).
