Here's someone who installed a hard start with good results for his 17c and Yamaha 2400ISHC generator. He didn't mention the brand name of the parts.

I don't know what the long term effect will be, but it's working for him now. FWIW. vic

I just bought an SPP 6 hard start capacitor for my 1997 Coleman AC unit on my trailer I bought it because my 3000 watt generator will not start it it will sometimes but most time no and I thought maybe I could get it to start it runs fine on my house electricity can somebody tell me if I'm crazy to add this to it or if it is good idea

If you lived close by....I'd come by and hook it up for you no charge :-).
The Supco SPP6 says to hook it up to the run capacitor. I was thinking 9if the Coleman mach AC already comes with a hard start capacitor,) why not hook them up in parallel? That way, more power from the Capacitors and less power requirement from the Generator?
