Hello, three is a wiring diagram glued onto the side of the motor, if you can take a photo of it, and attach it here using the paper clip icon at the right end of the tool bar, and take a picture of the wiring diagram glued inside the blower service door I can mark those up with wiring instructions.

Photo's must be taken close up, from straight on, and be very will lit and focused.

We can go from there.
