Glad I could help! I've learned so much about brewing here I try to give back where I can. This
one was an interesting challenge. I had to study the motor drawings a few times to figure out
what was g...

Looking at your drawing again, Neutral on S6 is effectively the same circuit as what I
described. It just interrupts both hot and neutral when the switch is in the center off

Looks like you have it almost correct in the drawing. The neutral connects to M2. Nothing on
S6.The connection at the mid point of the coils has to do with the way this motor is configured
