I just got my 1.5hp super pump repaired (bearings), and I'm about to hook it back up. I know that people are (and for good reason) reluctant to offer electrical advice for fear of what may happen if things go wrong, but this is a very basic wiring question (my apologies if my terminology is embarrassingly off) that I think can be answered here :
The three wires that are connected inside the motor ... with my filter, two are black wires that had the connectors (the type that slide slide into place on a contact) that are seen in my hand in the attached photo. There also is a green wire that has a connector that gets screwed in to the motor.
I marked the one black wire (seen in pic with blue tape) that was connected between the other two, and I wanted to make sure my recollection of how they are connected is correct. What I remember is:
* the black wire without the tape would slide on the contact pictured far left.
* the black wire that I identified as the "middle" one would slide over the upright second from left.
* The green wire would be screwed into the the spot with an empty hole that obviously is designed for a screw.
Does that seem right to you guys? I'm 99.5% sure but just would like some reassurance since I've never done this before.
