Contactor wiring ?

My Coleman Evcon A/C contactor needs replacing. The new one is identical EXCEPT the T1 an L1 wiring posts change sides. Question is, should I move the wires to that side too or wire them to the T2 an L2 posts without having to change the wires original wiring shape. Thanks for any info, Eddiebuck

With 230V. single phase it wouldn't make any difference.
Polarity doesn't matter with AC voltage, as long as you keep the neutral separate, you can switch the 2 supply leads to either L terminal, and the 2 supplied leads to either T terminal. Nothing is going to reverse rotation.

Ditto

THink of it as installing a light switch so it says No instead of on. A little backwards but is doeas and will continue to work.

It really is just a switch.

It Worked!!!

Thanks folks. It worked by wiring the L1 to the L2 and T1 to T2 and not having to reroute the wires. Thanks A BUNCH, EDDIE
