A number of folks responded with the info I needed.
Thanks to all of you.
Grainger had the replacement cap, and the change in the
rotor is astounding!
Rather than $500+ for a new Tailtwister or whatever, the
venerable Ham-III turns the tower with vigor after a
mere $3.30 capacitor infusion!
Thanks again to all.
