Electric motor wiring

I have an old (probably 1920's) Jack and Heintz 261-11e 1/6 hp motor 115 v

The Electrical pigtail was accidentally pulled off. Now I have three unmarked electrical posts to fasten the new pigtail to. How do I tell which is the ground and which are the hot posts? I have a multi meter. Is it sufficient to check which post is continuous to the case and assume that kit is the ground and the other two are hot?


Thanks... Larry

Welcome to the forums! No, we don't assume in electricity. Can you post a couple of pictures of the peckerhead so we can see what you are seeing? Thanks. http://www.doityourself.com/forum/el...your-post.html
