Reconnect a Replaced 3/4 hp motor on Polaris pool booster pump -

I changed the motor to pump. motor is 3/4 hp 115V/230V and I am trying to connect to the automatic timer.
The new motor is an emerson and has a manual switch to choose from 115 V and 230 V. How do I determine which way to position the switch?

Pump timer box has conduit connected to it with 1 green wire and 2 black wires. Does it matter where black wires are connected? Green is ground. Not sure of the black ones.

thanks for your help. GK

What kind of breaker turns off the power?
With 2 blacks and a green, I would think it was 240v.
