I have a Marathon M409440 motor. The, blue and orange wires

Customer Question

I have a Marathon M409440 motor. The brown, blue and orange wires are pulled off the terminals. Want to wire this to 115v. I don't see any numbers on the terminal board. I think the motor is from the early '90s. At least that is how long it has been laying around the shop.

Does the terminal board on your motor look like the picture I have attached?
