Depending on if the motor for the tub is 120v or 215/230v follow these instructions....
120v - connect each black wire to it's own spade terminal and the green/yellow wire to the round ground tab on the new plug.
215/230v - follow the same procedure, but when complete, make sure that you are connecting to a 215/230v outlet, if it is a standard 120v outlet, you will most likely blow a fuse, or even worse the motor.
There should be a name plate on the motor that will tell you if the motor is 115v or 215/230v.
If the motor is 120v, you will have one "Line" wire, and the other is "Neutral" In A/C wiring it does not matter which is which due to the fact that the "Line" and "Neutral" alternate there current 60 times a second
If the motor is 215/230v then both the black wires are considered "Line", meaning that they both are carrying current at all times.
Hope this helps

Plug wires diagram

Place plug wires in order, from shortest to longest on ground beside vehicle, or on a portable work table. Carefully match the length of the shortest one to the shortest on motor. Lay the new wire alongside the old and remove one end of old, attaching the same end of the new one and then do the same to the other end. Fairly simple so far, so repeat this procedure with all the remaining ones one at a time, being carefull to only remove one end at a time, and also be sure of plug wire lengths. Note wires are routed the way that they are to keep them from contacting any hot surfaces or moving parts. Last step: put hands on hips and admire the fine job you just did!

The heater isn't heating the hot tub and a code comes up "PRS" and says to clean/service the filter. how can i do this myself at home to get it to heat the hot tub again.

PRS means that the heater is not sensing pressure in the plumbing.
Make sure that the pump basket is clean.
Make sure pump is flowing freely as it should (no blocked skimmers or returns)
Make sure filter pressure is where it should be. If this is a cartridge filter, remove and clean the cartridges. If its a sand filter or a DE filter just do a long backwash.
Make sure any heater bypasses are closed.

If you know the water is flowing freely, and you still see this code, you must replace the pressure switch. It should cost about $35 for the part at a retail store. It is located on the top side panel opposite of the water connections. It looks like a round disk screwed into the header, with two wires coming from it. Just unscrew the old part, and using teflon tape, screw in the new part.
Connect wires, and restart the heater. It does not matter in which place you put the wires.

Dont know where to start with placing new plug wires on my '96 360 engine.I have the firing order, but where do I start my first plug wire? Do you have a diagram ?

Take the old wires off one at a time. Compare the old wire to the new wires and find the new one that is the same length as the old one. put the new wire on routing it exactly as the old one was routed. Move on to the next wire. As long as you replace them one at a time you can't mess anything up.

How do you replace a flow switch in a spa, or hot tub

turn off the power to the spa. remove the cabinet under the topside remote to expose the equipment compartment. You should see the flow switch, it's usually a threaded 3/4" plug with a single grey wire coming out of it. Most of them are threaded into a tee or a special transparent fitting. If the water level in the spa is above the flow switch, you may have to drain the spa down unless you're very fast about getting the new switch in. Unthread the old switch and thread the new one in. Follow the wire on the old one to the spa pack. You'll have to remove the screws on the cover to expose the circuit board. Follow that wire into the spa pack to see where on the circuit board that it is plugged in. It may be good to run the new wire to have in place as soon as you unplug the old one you can install the new one with no question as to where it plugs in.

Reinstall the cover on the spa-pack and turn the main power back on. Make sure that the arrows on the new flow switch are facing the correct direction (direction of flow). Once you have the spa on and it starts back up, run everything to check for leaks and proper operation. If the flow switch was the only problem, all your faults should be cleared and you should be in good shape. If there are no leaks, you can reinstall the cabinet panel.

The new switch should already have teflon tape on the threads, if not, use teflon tape, apply the tape in the direction as if you were threading a nut onto the threads. You only need a few wraps of teflon tape, too much can crack the fitting you threat the new flow switch in to.

I just picked up a hot tub and i need to know how to wire it for 110.

First you need a supply or a home run to your panel, or you can tie on to another circuit. With hot tubs you should ALWAYS use a GFCI (ground fault circuit interrupter) breaker or device or you could die from electrical shock (water and electricity don't mix!!!!!!) if its a hot tub its not likely that its 120v because of the heating elements and pump usually they are 220-240v make sure you are using the right voltage or you could burn up any controls and your wasting money. Make sure there is a good ground, GFCI devices need a ground to work properly. Other than that, black or other dark colors are hot, white and gray are neutral, green is always ground. Get yourself a tester and find the hot lead it should read 120v to ground or neutral. Be very careful with wiring its not always done correctly you have to check with a tester. With 220-240v you have two hots, a ground,and no neutral unless the appliance specifically calls for it. this can be very dangerous and if you don't have any experience you should probably call a professional. GOOD LUCK

How to turn on hot tub

Check at the plug in if it has a normal plug like in your home first. Should be a set of buttons there, called a GFI. One is test, and the other reset.Push reset to see if spa comes on. Most spas dont have an actual on button. Check breaker box for popped breaker also, maybe tub is having problems, and needs a service call. Also larger tubs ussually jave a gfi or fuse box outside, close to tub. Kirk
