It works! Your diagram helped me figure out the wiring in the box since all the colors were different it would have been impossible without that diagram. Even then tho that block box, capacitor or whatever it is was making it not work once I removed it everything works as it should. Even if I connected it according to the diagram just like I did the light. I have read some motors need a starting capacitor or something?? Either mine doesn't or I blew that little black box thingy in my earlier attempts to wire it. I will shoot some pics when everything is installed off to work now tho. Thanks again guys and especially Day Tripper for the diagram you guys are life savers! Plus now I can return the new switches and box I bought at Home Depot

Glad to hear you got it working! I am guesing that the motor capacitor is under that lump/cover on the side of the motor.
All good that you got it going
