what is the capacitor rating desired on motor label...and what is actual microfarad of the capacitor when tested?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I can only find a run capacitor on my pump. It tested at 36. I dont have the other requested info right now but can get it once the rain stops. I can't find a start capacitor on this pump.
