Change motor to 120v from 240v (with pics)

Here is the diagram it looks straight forward but there are more wires then i thought.

Also would i need to change this switch for 110.

Is there a 200 plug at the end of the black cable or just wires to go to the breaker panel?

The switch is likely fine since it was running 240 volts before. "Line" is your source power.

For 120 volt operation connect:
White and yellow together with your white line
Red and Black together with your black line

The actual wiring is no problem. I see a red, black and green wire for power. That should be changed to a cord with white, black and green wires.

As far as connections .........
The white wire(neutral) connects to white and yellow wires at motor.
The black wire(hot) should go thru the power switch and then connect to red and black wires at motor.
