Dumpster dive compressor! electrical question

I scored a CH VT6300 compressor from a dumpster behind a Sears warehouse, it's mostly intact but it had a few damaged parts that I replaced.
The motor is a dual capacitor unit, but the start cap is missing and I'm having a heck of a time finding the correct value for it. Does anyone here have a similar motor they could check for me? The specs on the motor are:

Emerson Motor Division
Model T638XCCT 1233 MFG no. E01C
HP SPL Duty Cont Frame 56 Type T
Volts 120/240 HZ 60 RPM 3450 Ph 1
Amps 15/7.5 SF Output 2.25KW

CH bills this as a 5hp model, but the 2.25KW figure makes this a 3HP motor.
FWIW, the run capacitor is a 30uF, 370v unit from Aerovox.
