    That's a three phase motor. Why the capacitor? I thought you were going single phase.

    Well, going by the connector block I'd have said three phase. There is usually a diagram on the cover for that block.

    try your live and neutral from the power cable on the first 2 connectors, as in the closest to the cable entry gland *edit make sure your earths on the body of the motor as well

    It says single phase motor in big letters so i guess it's a cap start cap run motor.

    You've got the power on the wrong terminals FFS. Look at the diagram LINE is your incoming power wires go.
