This is all my motor has on it. I ordered a new one but the one I got only has 2 wire connectors not 3 like the old one. Can you tell me what the best match is for  this one? Or if you have one like this one?

We'd be glad to assist you. Could you post a picture of the complete pump?

It's odd that the motor doesn't have another nameplate that lists the voltage, frame, and other specifications. My best guess is that the replacement should be the BN50V1. That is a 1.5HP dual speed 115v motor with a 48Y frame. The replacement now has a run capacitor on top of the motor.

The wiring diagram is at the top of the second picture.

Ty. I think It's at least 7 years old. We got a bn35v1 and wired it for 110.

The BN35 is a single speed motor and your original motor was 2-speed. That's why the new one had two connections and not three like your previous motor.

Can you post a picture of the motor label that shows the wiring diagram and a picture of the terminal board at the back of the motor?
