Isable wreaked havoc on us!

I need help in wiring my new lift motors.

Here’s a picture of the switch. On the other side of the switch barrel are the line inputs. As you look at the switch starting from the bottom: [Note, the bottom black-orange do not appear to be electrically connected- I think they are the hots that need to be switched???? The red and white are jumpered to the other side of the switch]

Bottom left is black Bottom right is orange
Middle is red
Top is white

Looking at the motor: configured for 110v CCW rotation

Left, P4 = Black, white Right, P1 = Red, Orange

Image of motor in next post..... .

According to motor instructions, to reverse directions swap the Black and Red.

Anyone know how to do this? If easier, I can call- bmail a number.

Many thanks in advance!

I have probley wired about 60 Boat lifts. All you need to do is reverse the red and black thru the switch. The switch should have a diagram with it to do this if it is a reversing Drum switch. But the problem is you lift is near the water and should be done by a electrician. I have seen one electrocute a person before because it was done wrong. If you can't figure it out it would be scary to try to tell you how. A simple service call from a licence electrician would be a good idea. I have been a electrician for 30+ years and a electrical contractor for 13 years and would recomend this to you. Mark H.

Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately, money is an issue- Isabel was not kind to me.

I will try the local technical center (I am a teacher as well as part time waterman) for help.

As I look at the switch, I see that the top two wires (red and white) are jumpered. I'm thinking that they go to the pins on the motor. The wires (black and orange) on the bottom element are not jumpered. They would be connected to the black and red on the motor (the two that need to be reversed.) Am I in the ballpark?

Thanks for any direction.

Here's a pic of the motor.

I saw a post in archives of reversing a SB lathe motor- I need what wire goes where. Many thanks!

I had it backwards. Used 12 to check switch. The top two reversed.
