either the HP of the motor or the amperage is wrong...a 1/3 hp motor should draw a few amps.

as far as i can tell there should be a capacitor with this motor as well. Did you purchase this new or used. If your interested here's the site with the motors wiring diagrams and the parts that should have been included with the motor. You can actually purchase the capacitor from them as well for fairly cheap.

This is an OEM motor. You need to call Bodine and find out who owns the unit. Is this just a motor or is it a gear motor? Bodine builds gear motors. They may be able to assist with a wiring diagram, but doubtful.
This is what the colors represent on the motor connections.

Blk-5 / Rd-8 / Blu-1 / grn-yellow- Grd. These are the NEMA designations for color coding.

Bodine's website allows you to punch in the serial number of a motor and it takes you directly to the wiring diagram for that motor....check out the link above i posted...i don't have alot of capacative start motor experience and would like a second opinion. It looks to me like the capacitor is supposed to be on the exterior of the motor? Or is it hardwired internally?

Good job Andrew. The wiring diagram is there and simple.

Blue - Line
Red - Line and cap
Black - Remaining terminal on cap.

OP. Click on the link Andrew provided, and paste the serial number into the required field. The diagram is right there.
