Steven, when you apply power, does it only hum and attempt to rotate slowly or does it do absolutely nothing, no hummmm at all ??
First suspicion if it does nothing is a bad connection where you reconnected whatever wires you removed. May even have disturbed another connection while working in there.
If it hummmms and/or attempts to initiate rotation, I would suspect the start capacitor as the issue. However, everyone above is correct about the potential problem lying within the centrifugal start switch. In your endeavors, possibly blowing with air to clean it out, some debris could have become lodged between the contacts so the start winding and consequently the start capacitor is not in the circuit. If your wire connections are good, re-blow the area of the the end bell, it may dislodge particulate inadvertantly blown in.....
Double check the wire numbers, smudges etc make them hard to read.
....and, I've done it before....I've plugged into a cord or outlet that had no power..... Give us some more info...someone will get you taken care of I'm sure.
The easiest thing for you to replace is the capacitor, which will be less than twelve bucks or so from WWGrainger if you have no way to test one. If you have access to an analog (not digital) meter I can give you the proper test procedure for field testing. However, some cheap digital meters (less than $60.00) will have a capacitance test position on the dial.
