I would venture that if that was a cap made for spyder board then just like 90% of the other spyder boards you NEED to use 9.6v battery. If your board doens't have a charging port you will need to get external charger too. I would consider picking up a spyder board at this point.
Other things you could do if your getting caught up are polish ALL moving surfaces, solenoid pin, sear, striker. Then theres the old penny or copper shim behind the solienoid so it doesn't have to move as far. Check your spring if its any old spring then its probably TOO heavy to start with and you could probably use a medium spring from a kit and still shot to velocity, I found the heavier ones catch the sear more.
To my knowledge, it's the correct capacitor, as that was what came stock with the board and is what Viewloader says...
As for the battery, I haven't yet tried a 9.6...it was designed for a straight 9v (the manual says "Do NOT use a 9.6v battery in your marker") but I can try that once I get my hands on it...I'm just wondering if it's something in the board that's old or blown or something...I'll try all that! I wonder if it's the sear return spring as well...I could switch that to another, lighter one. And yeah, I did try swapping springs, I shot it today at the lightest. Shot about 220 with the VA backed out and it still was skipping...I just wanna solve it!
I'll start swapping springs out and see what happens!
