Question
Motor wiring pin board
Motor wiring pin board  
I have a GE Appliance Motor (the plate with model number is missing - I suspect it came from a washing machine). How do I connect the motor to power? Is the motor reversible? I plan to use the motor for a grinder and buffer. I' attaching a photo of the pin connection board. thanks for your help.

Answer
Put power to L2 and P2, if there is no L1.
I dont think its reversible.
You may have to complete the circuit by jumpering out any combination of 4,5,6.
Maybe its reverses through a module?

The motor leads have to be checked for circuit.
best to take it to  a motor shop
