I've got this old 1 1/2 hp pool pump motor E44549. I'm trying to wire up from 230 to 115 so I can test it. biggest problem is the label is bleached so I'm trying to make sure I'm doing it right. 20180712_235526.jpg 20180713_000631.jpg from the diagram it looks like it says the brown wire goes to terminal B and the white wire goes to L2 if this is correct which terminal would be the hot L1 or L2 thanks for any help :)

I don't think it really makes any difference, but normally I would wire the hot to L1.

Looks correct. Doesn't matter which is hot L1 or L2
Be sure to have a ground wire also for safety; pool motors are often exposed to the elements/corrosive chemicals and become electrically "leaky" leading to a possible shock hazard
