Question about AO Smith 1.5 hp Swimming Pool - Jet / Well Pump Motor - / Century B123
Motor label shows line in to each of the "L" terminals. Most 2speed motors seem to need line in to L1, common to L2 and other line in to "A", What is the right way to wire this puppy?
It is hard to say because each motor Mfg puts their own spin on the high low terminals.
there is usually a wiring diagram on the outside of each motor explaining that and it is clearly not on yours.
I would go to the motor Mfg website to get a wiring diagram for your particular brand.

Black and white are usually power. an ohmmeter will confirm. Brown are for capacitors. There is almost always a diagram on the motor someplace. Eric

SOURCE: I'm trying to hook up
Yes, it will handle the voltage...
It is odd indeed as a normal AOSmith two-speed motor will have quick-connect AND screw posts for line connection terminals. If you are certain there are only two screws yet the motor is a two-speed then the answer to the first question is yes; you'll need a female quick-connect terminal for your second line connection to the A terminal.
