None of the compressors "need" the run capacitor, it is added to reduce the power factor of the running compressor and phases the start winings to reduce power consumption - if you want to add it, it goes in parallel with the start and run winding - by not using it will, in itself, a
have no ill effect on compressor.
You need to face the fact that you are already working with a compromised compressor that WILL fail again someday, but you have bought yourself some time to shop
