Hello, my name is***** welcome to Just Answer/Pearl , I will try to answer your electrical question today.

I did some background checking on AO Smith and found out their electrical motor division was bought by another party in 2011, and now manufacture motors under the "Century" banner. To begin our investigation of proper winding wiring I need to know as much about this motor as possible i.e., what is it's purpose and is there any model number or horse power information at all legible on the name plate sticker/ housing ?

Any of this information will be necessary before I can continue assisting you, thank you !

After several hours of searching I am sorry to say I haven't found an exact match for your wiring needs, I will opt out now, maybe someone will have better luck. That being said I am going to continue to look for your information, as I despise failing to help people and if I do find something I will opt back in and let you know. Sorry for the inconvenience.
