I want to use 110V
There is a wiring diagram. It calls for wires P2, T5, and T3 to be joined together with the label "TAPE" below it. It also calls for wires T2, T8, and T4 to be joined together with the label "LINE" beneath it. Then there is a lone wire - P1 labelled "UNGR'D". I don't know what "TAPE" and "LINE" mean.
Welcome. My name is XXXXX XXXXX would be glad to assist.Tape means:Take P2, T5 and T3 leads, connect them to each other and use a wire nut to join them and keep them together.Take T2,T8 and T4 and join them all with the Hot wire from the breaker .Take P1 and connect to the neutral from the power source .When wiring 115 volts, you have 3 wires going to the panel, black connects to the breaker, white to the neutral bar and the bare wire to the ground bar.The only draw back with wiring a motor with 115 volts, is be sure of the nameplate rating of AMPS or A.
You need a minimum of #12 wire on your motor as the nameplate states 11.5 amps running on 115 volts. That keeps you in a safe position on wiring
#12 is good for 20 amps#10 is good for 30 amps
If the motor does not turn in the correct direction for your application, swap the positions of T5 and T8, that will reverse the direction of the motor.
OK, so T2, P5, and T3 are all bound together with a wire nut. Do they connect to the chord in any way?
The chord I will use will have three wires. Which color will connect to T2, T8, and T4?
Which color will connect to the P1 neutral?
I told you I was an amateur. Thanks.
