mcmaster.com also sells motor start and run capacitors.

Ebay is another great place.

Keep in mind the voltage needs to be correct (or higher), but the capacitance can be anything within a range. A lower capacitance value might mean a sluggish start, and too high will be a really hard, jerky start.

Most capacitors have a pretty loose tolerance too, like +/-20%.
