Hello and welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I'll be happy to assist you today. Can you provide the part or model # of the new motor? Are you putting this in a gas furnace or electric air handler?

I'm having a lot of trouble finding that diagram. Was it a used motor? If it was new, was there a diagram that came with the motor or attached to the side of the motor?
