Are you sure it's 24v cap? Normally, the voltage you see on the cap is the maximum it'll handle before overloading.

that would make sense, but why would you need that? if anything exceeds 14.4 volts wont it blow a fuse?

no if the current exceeds a certain amprege a fuse will blow...yeah and a 24v cap is the max it will take...just gimmiks anyway...a ho alt is the best way to go...really most caps stores try to sell cost like 100-200$ (cheap ones obviuoulsy less) but for that u can get a ho alt...and run a full size regfrigorator if u want

they are usually marked 12V/XXV...the second number is the highest surge voltage it can take before causing damage to the cap.
