Split phase and signle phase motors ?
Do they both need starter capacitor or no ? What about a capacitor run ?

All split phase motors are single phase.
Split phase means: two sets of stator windings (start and run).
Permanent split phase supplies the start winding at all times
through a small capacitor.
Split phase energizes start windings instantaneously while starting
with a start device (Voltage relay, current relay, PTC, or other);
and might or might not use a start cap to improve starting torque.
