What voltage are you trying to wire it for?
Do you have a wiring diagram anywhere on the cover or on the motor ID tag?
120 volts is another way to wire it other than tieing the 135 and 248 together and then wiring each one of those to a hot and common ..
u think maybe it has a start and then run windings ?
the diagram is worn bit it has a low voltage and i beleive the other might say high voltage.
That is normal. Are you trying to wire it for 120 volts?
What does the diagram say for low voltage for connections? Are you sure it's #8 and not #6? How many total wires are there in the motor junction box?
theres 6 total there is a number 1,2,3,4,5,8 the wire diagram is wore off
Was the motor wired for anything when you got it?
Do you have a # XXXXX the baldor motor?
