Converting Dayton motor voltage

I'm new to this forum and am electrically challenged.

I have a Dayton Electric motor
Model: 5K122-C
Motor ref: M62056-C 0B
H.P.: 1/2
Volts: 115/208-230
Phase: 1

It is currently wired to run on 220 and I need to convert it to 110. I've opened up the wiring plate and was expecting to see a diagram... sadly, there was none.

There are 7 wires coming out of the motor all numbered on brass tags:
Wires: 1,2,3 are all Green
Wires: 5,6,7,8 are all White

Currently:
wires 1 & 8 go to the Black wire
Wire 6 goes to the Red wire
Wires: 2,3,5 terminate together
Wire 7 Terminates

How should I re-wire this to a 110v plug?Name:  WiringDiagram.jpg

Welcome to the forums.

I don't see a C version but I do see an L version. The wiring should be the same. See if this diagram makes sense.

I'm still looking. This diagram doesn't appear to be similar to your motor.

Thanks Pete. Yeah, It doesn't really tell me what to do with my #2 & #6 wires. That said, maybe I can make some educated guesses based on the 208-230 diagram. What’s the worst that can happen?
