The motor in question is an AC motor.  

I bought one surplus from ebay for a small mill.

The data plate was on it, but no diagram.

We got it to run clockwise with no problems on 120V, however cannot get it to run counter clockwise (which is no problem for me).  Here is the info from the data plate.

Franklin Electric

Model: 1101451105

HP: 1/3

PH: 1

RPM 1725

HZ: 60


SF: 1.0

FR: 56C

KVA Code: M

V: 100


FLA: 9.0

About the two wires green with yellow stripe.  One is a separate case ground, and the case is isolated.

Also, the wire marked |2| is wired directly to the capacitor.

So with one being a case ground green with yellow stripe. The other being wired directly to the capacitor.

That leaves you with a red wire, and two black wires.

Also, there is a terminal and switch built onto the motor with 5 connectors.
