Replaced the motor on my boat lift with a new one. Motor is wired different from the old one internally and I can’t get it to work properly. I also need a new switch but can’t find one that closes the contacts in the pic.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

That switch (in the diagram) is a double pole change-over, centre-off.

It would have to be suitably rated (125V 10A would seem a reasonable precaution).

The one in this link is rated at 125V and 15A:

Thank you for the response. I am using it on a boat lift I have a setup with a barrel type switch and would like to keep it that way. Something similar to the photo.

Same situation applies. You will need a centre-off, two pole changeover switch that can easily be found in that format. The wiring (connections) to such a switch aren't quite as obvious as the switch I showed but it's all still doable.
