Of course.  Wiring one side to the common would almost be a short circuit.  The juice would bypass the compressor altogether, wouldn't it.

Now how about this...

Could the run capacitor actually diminish some of the boost from the start cap, i.e. is it possible that it could actually hamper the starting ability?
