I need to rewire it but I need a wire diagram because some one rewired it wrong. Photos of how it is wired are also good.

I don't have a wiring diagram, but I can tell you how it is wired.

There are two wires going to the capacitor (hot & start), it feeds the start windings. One start winding to the capacitor, the other to the neutral.

It has two sets of run windings which are duplicates. On high they are in parallel which means 120 volts on two leads & neutral on the common. On low they are in series which means the common on the two is eliminated. 120 goes in one lead, the common is disconnected & the neutral to the other.

Here is a photo but it has three wires going to the capacitor.

Two wires should go to the same terminal, they connect to either the line hot or neutral, depending on motor direction. The other single wire is one leg of the start winding.
My motor burned up & is being rewound. I don't have it to look at currently.

Hi Zachary, 2 observations. 1) you might want to consider using smaller labels for the wiring and repost the pics. It's really hard to see much of anything in your photos with the large post it note labels.  And 2) even if someone posts a wiring diagram you're likely going to have to mark and remove the wires from the switch and other components and then ohm out the wires to determine which wires out of the motor match up with the coil designations that Stan mentioned. 

I think a long while ago Mike Mirin, or perhaps it was someone else, posted instructions for swapping out the levolier with a toggle switch. I realize your switch is ok, but if I recall, there was a wiring diagram that he made in that post. 


I have one also to restore that needs a switch, so the outcome of this post is also of interest to me. 


Best of luck with your restoration. Hopefully if you ohm them out, Stan can be more specific with his recommendations.

I searched k60 and found a diagram someone posted

Hi Zachary.  I have not rewired this exact motor, but I have done several motors that I'd never seen before.  Here is a video showing how I made educated guesses, and determined by experiment how this Hunter motor is to be wired:



I am pretty sure your motor has a capacitor winding; and TWO SEPARATE run windings which are connected in series or parallel for low and high speeds.  What follows is a diagram for a Robbins & Myers motor which uses the same design.  The resistance values you find for your motor will help you to determine which wires are which. This video shows such a motor:



Similar Ilg motor wiring schematic:



Hopefully this information will help you determine which design your motor is; as well as what sort of relationship between the main and cap winding resistance you might find.

Sincerely,
David
