I just received my nice new EBM PABST blower from Newark, very fast
shipping by the way, but there is a problem. 

This is really dumb. How do you hook it up? Don't laugh till you hear
the details. There is no sheet with it, nothing on the EBM PABST web
site and a google search for European motor color code found nothing.
Several dealers have links to the factory data sheet, but that shows
only dimensions, not hookup.


So maybe someone here knows. There are three wires, none of which is
connected to ground (the frame). Are two for the AC and one for a
starting capacitor? Not a clue anywhere on the unit.

Here are the resistance readings:

BLUE TO BROWN = 70.8 ohms
BLACK TO BROWN = 211.8 ohms
BLACK TO BLUE = 41.3 ohms

So what goes where? AC between blue and brown and capacitor from black
to one of the others? And of course, what size capacitor?
