How to wire old blower motor

I have an old blower motor that came out of a old sears air purifier. I would like to build a simple housing for it and make a shop fan out of it. Is there a way I could easily wire this up to a standard plug. Thanks for any help you can give.

Hi, any wiring Dia.? look on the air purifier, you will need an Ohm meter to identify the wires if there is no Dia.

No wiring diagram so I'm a little lost on where to go from here.

That's going to be a difficult motor to wire for straight 120v. It looks like it needs a capacitor too.
I went to HHE but could not find any info on that motor.

Try posting the full model number for the purifier if you still have it.
It will look like xxx.xxxxxxxx

Without circuit diagram or reverse engineering control board, it will be very difficult to figure out how to wire the motor.

It probably is multi speed and probably will require capacitors.

Some motor experts probably can open the motor and figure out by looking how windings are connected. You are really better off just buying a fan or motor.

I tried to locate the control board but it's been long gone.
