Electric Motors/wiring diagram for ge single phase mptor

Do you know the wiring diagram for a GE single phase motor? The model number is 5kh47sg45f.  1/4 hp

Lenny, that is a two speed motor, single phase,  single voltage,   the model is not traceable for wiring,  GE has sold it's motor division  and is very protective of their data,    

All we can do from here, is for you to provide me the connections available,    either leads or terminals,    a photo would be a big help,         once I can see the available connections I can normally figure out how to connect as they use many different external connections,      not easy but unless you find a hidden connection   look in the connection box, sometimes on the cover, sometimes covered up,        but if nothing is there, then we have to figure out how they get the two speeds  from the external connections,     send me a photo if you can of the terminals or leads,    and lets see what you have,
