    Default Drum switch wiring

    I just acquired a 13" south end with a lesson 2hp single phase motor 230 v and it's drum switch had been removed. I have a Dayton 2x443 switch to install but I'm needing some help with wiring it up and was hoping somebody could offer some guidance and verify that is the correct switch it says on the motor that t5 and t8 are switched for reversing. I can't seem to post pictures now but will try later. Thank you for your help

    T5 and T8 are the two leads that are normally interchanged for reversing.

    Try again to post pics- particularly the wiring diagram of the motor and hopefully inside the switch cover, and the switch guts.

    lesson-sp-dual-voltage.jpglesson-drum.jpg if the connection diagram on the name plate mounted on the side of the motor looks the sketch of in the pic. then the motor to switch connection diagram (in next pic ) will work for . good luck and be safe,Ray
