Default Motor Run Capacitor

I'm getting ready to install the motor run capacitor in my SimpleSE. I see no markings for polarity of any kind, different sized terminals, or markings on the can. I am correct in thinking that these are non-polarized?

Yes, motor run cap is non-polarised, it does not matter which way you connect it
