I have this 1.5HP Leland Newman motor with no cover and no wiring diagram. Currently the motor is wired for CCW rotation at 240V and I need CW at 240V. The motor is 12 lead with two massive capacitors.

Does anybody have a clue how to wire this guy properly? Or even if Leland Newman motors are still around?

If Vintage Machinery can not help, hopefully you will have a good electric motor rebuild shop near you. It will
cost a bit, and most good ones can give you an estimate, but they should be able to tell you how to wire it

I just installed a new motor on a shaper and to change the direction required flipping just two wires – one from a bundle that was connected internally, and one from a connection to a lead out. If you give us a good diagram/pic of what wires you currently have doing whatever they are doing to give you the 220V CCW, we may be able to help find those two wires.
