Diagram for aosmith motor b381 is here: http://www.electricmotorwarehouse.com/IMAGES/B381_connection.htm
However, I believe that this motor will be more efficient at 230v depending on load conditions. At 115v this motor will draw more amps and tend to run hot, but situation rules. Enjoy

Is there a coverplate where the wires come out of the pump? If so, remove the plate and there should be a wiring diagram inside.

SOURCE: HVAC Blower Motor Replacement
Ain't nothing to it. Slide out the blower and take it outside. Use some rust buster to get the blower out. Don't beat on the shaft. Spread that shaft and the wheel won't come off. Use a rubber mallet. Most generic blowers have white as a common wire and the speeds are black-hi blue med and red, for low. 2 brown wires will go to the capacitor. other wires will reverse direction. Wash the housing and blower wheel good. any wire unused will be taped off to themselves. Nothing to it.

SOURCE: i need to replace the
Yes, that is a run capacitor. You will also need to clarify oval or round design.
You should take the old one in to a local electric motor repair shop if it is not obvious it is blown. Even if it is, their will be other issues that caused the capacitor to fail in the first place. You will want to try to identify those and fix them as well or you will be replacing the capacitor again soon.
