there hopefully is a diagram on the motor frame to show you.

I may go home hungry, but not tired and hungry.

Are you dealing with one of those well pump control boxes?

One of the capacitors should be for the starting winding of the motor, the other one for running the motor. There should also be some sort of overload buttons there that are connected as well.

What is the HP rating of your motor, and model of the control box?
