Welcome. My name is ***** ***** would be glad to assist.
It appears the motor may be an older unit, therefore making it more difficult to find all the specifications.
Can you post a picture of the wiring compartment and nameplate for review?
On the operation, can you please elaborate?
"Just hooking wires coming out of motor to 110 it runs up to sixty psi and then stops turning and kinda hums. Was hooked up to 220"
Not understanding the information?
Is it connected 110 or 220?
Did it run properly up to 60 psi?
What is the purpose to change the voltage?
Let me know and we can continue,
