That information is usually on the data plate on the furnace and on the motor itself. All you need to know now is the HP. Other than that a universal consolidator motor is an easy fix too. It can handle 1/6-1/3HP.

OK, locate the terminals on the capacitor marked "HERM"(Compressor lead), "FAN", and "COM".(common)
HERM and COM remian as they are.
The wire going to "FAN" (usually brown) will be placed on either terminal of the new capacitor. (This is the ((usually brown)) wire comming off of the fan motor.) An additional wire needs to be run from the other terminal of the new capacitor to the "COM" on the old capacior.
What you are doing is bypassing the fan side of the old capacitor but still using the compressor side of the old Cap.
The fan should have a wiring diagram on it to help identify the wires if there is no brown wire. The other two wires will be identified on the wiring diagram as well, but one typically goes to the contactor and the other to the board.

your looking at $175-$225 for just the single phase motor depending where you purchase, I just replaced mine(identical unit) due to screaming dry bearings, if you replace it your self make sure to keep new wires tight along side of unit or fan will cut them if loose and its a fan- 5mfd/25mfd compressor@440volt cap

Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.
Part of your problem will be the snake has a reversing switch so it is not as simple as just wiring two line leads. I assume you have a DPDT switch for reversing it? If so line goes to the center posts/terminals, motor L1 and L2 go to one end, motor red and black to the other end, and a jumper crisscrosses from end to end allowing the reversing.
In essence, what has to happen is in one direction motor L1 and red get power from one line and motor L2 and black from the other; to reverse motor L1 and BLACK get power from one line and motor L2 and RED the other. All of this assumes you are connecting to 115VAC since that is the portion of the diagram you reference. If not, add a comment with what you are connecting to.
If this answer does not fix your problem, please comment with additional details prior to rating the answer. You may also contact me thru our website at www.arrowpools.net. Positive feedback is appreciated once your problem is solved!
