Looking at the back of the motor, at one o'clock there should be a GREEN screw, this is the ground, underneath it at 3 o'clock the other 2 screws are power, theses have no polarity so no wire color comes in to play.. so one power wire hooks to one screw and the other wire goes to the other screw. now to set voltage, there should be a little white tab at 5 o'clock., it has a pointer on it that when pointed up is high volts,( this is how its sent from the factory). to change this carefully pull out about a 1/2 inch on this tab and rotate it down and wiggle it back in, make sure it goes all the way back in, now its set for LOW 120 volts.
Remember you must prime pool pumps with A few gallons of water before you run it !!! not all motors are the same, soo if you can add a picture or a model number of the motor, it helps us Pro's give very accurate instructions.
