Confused
 
Have 230 volt 3hp 1ph 230 volt motor drawing 15 amps operating a vacuum. Manual says run a 40 amp dedicated circuit. Problem is the motor has a 20 amp 230v plug. Distributor recommended wire nut a 20 amp receptacle to the # 8 thhn, I don't think so. My question is, if I cut the plug, staight wire motor lead into jbox with the #8 thhn, what would the amperage rating on a disconnect be?

Can you not accommodate this?
