I never heard anyone talk about the capacitor on the many forums I follow.
It could be bad tho and you would need a meter to test capacitance but has to be discharged first.

I would think it completely depends on the model # of the replacement pump. I saw that Youtube vid also explaining the change to a universal replacement pump, using the JIG writer, and changing the cap, but that was the only place I ever saw that requirement, and they never listed the new cap model code.
