I've got a Dayton 6K342 motor that I need to wire to run clockwise and counterclockwise. Its a single phase 230v circuit. I've got a Dayton Drum Reversing Switch 2X440 and DPDT center off switch.
Here are some links to pictures of the wiring diagram:

Lots of good info in what you sent me, but I've got a bad migraine today, so lets make this stupid proof for me. On my motor I've got T1, T2, T3, T4, T5, and T8. I've got 115v lines that together make my 230v.Here is my drum switch diagram: 2011-10-27_11-14-02_876.jpgHere is my drum switch in forward position: 2011-10-27_11-15-55_588.jpgHere is my drum switch in neutral/off position: 2011-10-27_11-15-04_601.jpgHere is my drum switch in reverse postion: 2011-10-27_11-15-40_891.jpgDrum Switch-What goes to what terminal?
Symbol key: O-terminalConnect?---->O | O<----Connect?Connect?---->O | O<----Connect?Connect?---->O | O<----Connect?Let me know if you need more info. Also if I need a different switch let me know.
You'll need a 9 terminal drum switch as shown in the link I sent you.
The links you sent are prevented from loading by my Norton program. They are listed as destructive. Wire the drum as the diagram shows and you'll have forward and reverse.
Any help on who makes a 9 terminal drum?
The two electrical supply companies in my town looked at me like I was pulling their leg.
Ok, you have not posted your motor nameplate, please post that data for verification. The wiring should be as follows assuming nameplate is a standard- do not wire until you confirm and post nameplate wiring instructions.
Ok, you can wire it this way. Understand many use this setup but it does notdisconnect all the power to the motor with the switch. You need a safety switch in line of the 240 volt to turn all power off for maintenance or any work on the machine.At Motor:Line 1 straight 120 volts to T1Drum switch:Terminal 1-----Line 2 120volt powerTerminal 2----- T4Terminal 3----- T5Terminal 4----- T8Terminal 5----- T2 and T3Terminal 6----- No connection
