Looking for a reliable replacement capacitor on pool motor

I'm looking to replace the capacitor on the motor that drives my pool pump. The motor just "hums" when I try and start it and nothing is caught in the impeller or binding it.

This capacitor sits on top of a Century B2854 0-F56AA40A01-24 (1.5 HP motor) Picture of this below capacitor picture.

I've attached a picture of the capacitor. I've seen plenty of similar capacitors on amazon, but I wanted to consult some experts to make sure I am getting the same ratings of my current capacitor, and getting a reliable one.

I don't know my brands or companies of electronics and I don't want to buy something that can harm the motor or will fail.
