120v motor in 240v circuit

This was a reply to a long dead thread and out of context with second reply to the dead thread. Icecats can you clarify this post?

It's going to be difficult to swap in a generic motor there. That should have a custom flange on it as well as some type of volute seal and impeller seal.

My plan is to use the old flange and attach it to a new motor. I will probably have to make a custom connection plate, but I think that I can pull it off.
I found a wiring diagram on the inside of the electronics box. I uploaded it here. It looks like there are four wires going to a pair of motor thermistors. Do you think that these are essential for the operation of the machine? Could I add some aftermarket thermistors or a couple of resistors to fool the machine?
Thanks
