Help to wire this AC motor

I can't seem to find a wiring diagram for this 120v fan motor. I want to install a regular plug to plug it in. There is a orange wire that is not connected to anything (hard to see in pics).

Welcome to the forums.

French built motor.... no technical info found.
That is a two speed motor.

Connect your power wires to the two posts.

Here's my guess based on the label.
Removing the red wire and replacing it with orange will yield the slow speed.

Thanks Pete. My only issue is which terminal is common and hot. I'm going to visit a "motor repair" shop and see if they are willing to help.

Since it's an AC motor.... there is no polarity. You can connect either way.

I did not know that. Thanks. I think your right about the orange wire being slow speed however I don't see a capacitor on this motor. The pic below is the closest diagram I found to date. Hopefully I get to try it out Tuesday. Let you know how it goes.

I'm pretty sure I can see the edge of a centrifugal start switch.

Good deal finding the diagram. Took the guess work out of the equation.
