OK i see the diagram is is great, but just to clarified at low speed the red and orange are connected to the cord.

and last what kind of capacitor i need? the motor is one horse power if that help.
Expert:  AssuredElectrical replied 10 months ago.

Yes, the low speed requires both, the red and orange together to the hot line from the cord.

The other 2 speeds only require 1.

 

On the capacitor, will need the Manufacturer and Model number of the motor to try and find what the original capacitor that is needed.

 

Capacitors are determined by the motor manufacturers when they design the motors.

They come in many different shapes, but all are the same.

Pick the one that suits where it will be mounted. Close to the motor as possible.
