    RE: dayton motor wiring question

    Midge, from what info you've given, your question is a tuff call. Because the diagram says"hot", it is probable that its a 120V. wired motor. I said probable. If it were wired 240V., my guess is you would not see the word hot on the WD. That said, the word "tape" probably, again, refers to a speed-tap and needs to be tapped off. It only takes 2 wires to run the motor, either 1 hot and a neutral, or 2 hots for 240V.. Both voltages should allways have a ground wire which would attach directly to the motor casing. You really need to give more info cause we can't see what it is you're refering to and you surely don't want to make a goof and have the motor go south on you.BTW, if the motor has threaded studs at the wiring point, tighten the nuts, but don't put a 24" wrench on them. If you're not real sure, take it to a motor/pump repair shop and they can set you straight and I doubt that you would be charged. Hope this helps out.

    Would you - could you - post a diggie photo of the diagram? THAT'd help a LOT.

    Check the namplate diagram to be sure the leads match up to this discription.

    For higher voltage (240 VAC)
    leads 1,8 and your supplied L1 go together.
    Leads 4,5 and your supplied L2 go together.
    Leads 2&3 go together.
    Leads 6&7 go together.
    Put a wire nut on each of these connections as you go along and wrap some electrical tape around them to make them secure.

    For lower voltage (120 VAC)
    Leads 1,3,6,8 go together with L1 or your hot leg.
    Leads 2,4,5,7 go together with your neutral.
    Same thing, twist the leads together and apply a wire nut. (Red or grey most likely do to the number of wires in a low voltage configurations.)

    In order to reverse the rotation of either voltage setting, interchange leads 5 and 8, 6 and 7.

    If in dought, have your electrician friend ring out the windings with a multi meter.

    Each of the leads coming out of the motors should have numbers along them for identification.

    Good luck, and I hope you have some good motors there for whatever you want to use them for. :7
