I am trying to wire a reversing drum switch to a 3/4 hp

Customer Question

Customer: ***** *****,I am trying to wire a reversing drum switch to a 3/4 hp reversing motor. the drum switch is a momentary switch.
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: sorry Norm, I hit the wrong key. The switch is from Relay & Control Corp. NY Model RS-1A . the motor is a 3/4 hp 115V reversing from Leeson. I am a pretty much self taught electrician but know nothing about reversing switches and motors. Any help will be appreciated.
JA: OK got it. Last thing — JustAnswer charges a fee (generally around $18) to post your type of question to Electrical Experts (you only pay if satisfied). There are a couple customers ahead of you. We can help you for less if you're not in a rush. Are you willing to wait a bit?
Customer: Yes
JA: OK. Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.
