The docs. pertaining to my HDX-555 with MCL100 Limit Switch package
include a section headed "1 HP wiring for 220V":
Tape T2 & T3
-- where Tx and Px refer to terminals on the motor. There is no mention
of changes to other wiring.
NOTE: I cannot guarantee that the above connections do in fact apply to
your motor and control system. If you blow them up, it's not my fault.
