Then the R should be connected to the same terminal as the Line in.

if you have an analog meter, it MAY work, but a digital, forget it. This advice is guaranteed for one million times the fee paid for it.

Just wish you would give up photos and even actual model number! Most have a wiring diagram somewhere....

If I'm not mistaken the start winding can be with a cap, cap and relay or solid state type. (they use a ceramic resistor in the top of the cap)

the wire on the uint itself, both to and from the cap, and to and from the C connection are very small wires. But inside the boat they are all 12 or 14 gauge. The issue was shore power, I had about 3 extention cords from the yacht to the plug. It burned the plug out too.
