What brand of pump? The shaft of the motor doesn't come out of the middle of the motor unless you take the motor apart and there are no o-rings in the middle of a motor

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly
Black is High/ 2, Red is Low /4 and white is L2 / COM (115 VAC connection) Also shown in Diagrm 69 below link as common
Usually on the side of an AO Smith motor there is a nameplate with a diagram of the connections.

See Diagram CD 69, CD 39, CD 41

No there is no switch in the motor.Correct voltage is done by hooking up incoming power to a combination of internal wires or contacts.
There should be a wiring diagram on the cover where the hookup is.Or on the outside case of the motor.
The high and low speed doesnt make sence to me.Check the rpm of the motor it should be one rpm continueous.
Unless this is a Hvac motor and not a pool pump motor.Possible you may have been sold the wrong motor.
Usually a pool pump is 115 volts 1 speed and 1 rpm continuos duty.Unless you specify 230 volts.
