I'm changing my compressor (Speedaire w/ Dayton motor) from 110V to 220V. The wiring is a piece of cake, but do I need to change the start capacitor that clearly says "125V" on the side? Will this be overloaded at 220V or does the switched up wiring only feed it one leg of 110V at start up?

If that capacitor came with the compressor, it is correct to use it for both voltages. The voltage selected for operation has no impact on the capacitor rating of a dual voltage motor.
