Reversing Drum Switch

Hi,
Would like some one to complete the wiring diagram of the attached drawing of wiring a 240V single phase motor through a drum switch, the drawing is 370kb, will not upload and I don't know how to make it smaller. Sorry.

Regards
Phil

Pretty touch to do much with large PDF diagrams. Was this a working combination already?

No PJ max,
Originally it was 3 phase.
A single phase motor was fitted.

With a three phase motor..... reversing any two motor power leads will reverse the motor. That explains the jumpers on the switch.

I'm still looking at the diagram.

In the second diagram.... what are we looking at.... a wiring diagram plate ?
The part with the ? looks like a centrifugal start switch.

The ? is some sort of capacitor.
The second diagram is a view of the wiring block inside the single phase motor with the start capacitor and the ? capacitor?

Phil
