Flat-Plate Motor Capacitors are designed to use with motors with a 56 frame footing.
Start capacitors briefly increase motor starting torque and allow a motor to be cycled on and off rapidly. A start capacitor stays in the circuit long enough to rapidly bring the motor up to a predetermined speed, which is usually about 75% of the full speed and is then taken out of the circuit, often by a centrifugal switch that releases at that speed. Direct Drive capacitors are designed for c-face motors. Flat-plate capacitors are designed for 56 frame motors.
