If this motor is single voltage (115 only), then most likely blue and yellow are the run winding, black and red are the start winding, and obviously, the two black wires are the brake coil.

For standard rotation (clockwise when viewed from the back) one side of the 120 would go to blue, black, and one of the brake wires. The other side of the 120 would go to yellow, red, and the other brake wire.

For non-standard rotation, one side of the 120 would go to blue, red, and one of the brake wires. The other side of the 120 would go to yellow, black, and the other brake wire.

You've likely figured this out by now, but swapping the black and red will reverse rotation.

For some reason if you can't get the colour codes but here the number verison .,

1- Bleu
2- White
3- Orange
4- Yellow
5- Black
6- NCA { no color assianged }
7- NCA
8- Red

P1 - NCA
P2 - Brown

That is typical NEMA color / Number format however it may varies a bit from standard format escpally with IEC motor it will be out of the window.

Merci,Marc
