i just got a free 1 hp motor to run my grain mill along with a reversing switch from a defunct motor.
i marked the wires from the old motor with corresponding numbers on the switch wires.
the 1 hp motor was just wired to a plug and runs counter clockwise when facing shaft. - i need it to run clockwise. there is a centrifugal switch inside i can see and hear that activates shortly after motor starts running. its a leland type r55 110/220 -maybe not reversible?
which wires do i attach where?
on the old motor wires marked 2 and 3 are white and 1 and 4 are black.
on the 1 hp motor the black wire was with the checkered red/white wire(lhs on photo) and the greenish wire was with yellowish wire(rhs on photo) note the yellowish wire is really red when i checked inside the motor.
i don't want to wreck the motor or switch by doing it wrong
thanks for any advice.
edit: i hooked up wire 4 from the switch to the black wire on 1 hp motor and wire 3 from switch to yellowish(really red) wire on 1 hp motor and the motor runs counterclockwise when facing motor when switch is set on reverse.
