Question about Jeep CJ5
Last time I looked, black was always the ground... But, been wrong before.I'd check with parts guy to make sure you have the correct motor. If it replaces original design there is usually a sheet with wire re-route diagram. If not, use a volt meter to determine which wires are carrying voltage in the vehicles harness connector. One may have less volts than the other... I would assume the one closest to battery voltage is high speed. one should be ground. If both carry voltage then the case is ground.(usually in this case there is a spade terminal on one of the attachment screws, and a seperate ground wire.) If your new motor has three terminals, it's likely that one is ground, one low speed one high. (though I can't remember ever seeing this arrangement.(speeds usually controlled with resistor block) Again, if this is the only motor available, at worst, I'd tie both power leads from the motor together (making sure that one lead is not a ground) and connect them to the harness spade that carries 12v, make sure there is a good ground, and use as is. But, do some research first.
