Need Electric Motor Wiring Help
 
5 Attachment(s)

So we got a new motor to motorize my grain mill, the old motor I got off of Ebay wasn't strong enough. The new motor came with no power cord so it needs to be wired up. Since it can go forward and reverse I figure I would use the control box and wiring from the old motor. But I have no idea what wires go to what?

So coming out of the control box are 4 wires: white, black, green, and red.

Coming out of the motor: black, yellow, a black wire that has writing on it, and two sets of 3 wires whose ends are crimped together which I assume means they belong together: black, white, orange and black, red, blue

I've attached some pictures that hopefully will help.

So what do I do? Thanks for any help.

Here is a better pic of the diagram on the motor I just don't understand:

What wire is P1 or P2 whats line 1 and line 2 what does insulate mean?

And how do these correspond to the four wires coming out of the box?

Seems like I got too many wires?

I need to wire it according to the low voltage side.

Help?
