My jerk boss is sending me out to hook up a 480v elevator where vandals cut out the copper wire. I"m supposed to splice and run back to main 3 pole 30 amp breaker. The freight elevator was made by elisha otis in the 40's. Can I just hook up and tap the start button, if it sounds good then i'm done. If not, then just switch out 2 lines?

You should have no wiring after the controller. That's elevator tech work.
Bring new feeds to a disconnect, then from the disconnect to the controller that's it. If you foul something up there could be serious.liability issues.
