    Without any reference photos, no one is probably going to try to advise you.
    However, I ran across a video of a guy that rewired his GE motor on a SB 9".
    I watched a little of it....guess it's better than nothing. There might be some
    good info nuggets in there somewhere.

    Keep in mind, this is a two-parter, so make sure to look for the 2nd video.
    Hope it helps.

    If it doesn't, let me know. I have a '59 9B with a Gen Elect motor, and I cut the cable between the motor
    and barrel switch (to move the machine). I am NOT an electrician!

    BTW, it would be a good idea to learn how to send pics...it's not that hard. See "how to" topics above.
    OOOPs: I just saw your diagram photo, so looks like you learned.

    I can't tell if you're replying to Hank or to me. I've never had any prob with pics. ????
