Hi I'm new to these forums and hope to get some help I have an old baldor motor I would like to wire up its a single phase ac motor I'm trying to wire it for 115 volts it has a wiring diagram on the motor it says connect wires 1 3 8 and wires 2 J 5 which I have already done each of the wires are in there respective groups connected with wire nuts in the pictures I have them up and out of the way so you can see better so my question is where do I connect my positive and negative wires too from my power cord? and what do I do with the number 4 wire that's just hanging there? any help would be great thanks.

Can't see the diagram and it is out of focus.

Try like another poster did here, light the subject via other source and turn off the flash.

Try to use some form of punctuation to make your request readable.

L1 (hot) ties to 1,3 and 8
L2 (Neutral) ties to 4
2,5 and J tie together
Don't forget the proper overload protection and ground.
