I disconnected the pump and need to know where the red black aND WHITE wires go

Hi, this is John the Hayward tech. You say the wire colors are Red, Black and White. Does not seem that the wires colors were correct from the start. Not knowing your voltage let me clarify some things. Normally if you have 115volts coming into the pump you wire colors should be Red or Black to L1 White to L2 and a green ground to the green ground screw. If you have 230volts coming into the pump the two hot leads are normally red and black with a green ground. The red and black wires go to L1 and L2 does not matter red or black. The green goes to the green ground screw.

How to wire emerson pool pump to switch box

The green is ground. The other two wires connect to white and black. The motor should come on. IF you take the black wire from the power cord and disconnect it from the motor black wire and install a switch there. You can control it.

My fuel pump dosen't work all the time and i just replace it.

There are 2 connectors on the alternater. The round one has 3 wires. If there is no voltage on the green wire when the engine is running the alternator is bad. I'm not sure what fails internally but the alternator can put out fine charging voltage on the main black lead and not have voltage on that green wire. That wire is a trigger for the fuel pump relay. Voltage goes to the main power relay then to idiot lights in the dash then back to trigger the fuel pump relay. Along the way it goes in and out of the oil pressure switch(sender at the back bottom of passenger side of block with 2 yellow wires). This switch cuts voltage to fuel pump if no oil pressure. The green wire from alt is a safety in case of collision ect. Engine not running> no alt voltage on that wire>no fuel pump pressure>no fire. If this wire is bad it will not show up on the standard auto store test. And is a common failure. I had an brand new Isuzu rebuilt OEM alternator that was bad like this.
