Maynard, has a diagram on here somewhere. I believe it is a 3 prong SPDT switch. It has been 3 or 4 years since I have did mine. The electric lift is DPDT 6 prong switch.

Perry - Assuming you have a two-lead reversible motor, you would need a DPDT switch to reverse polarity to the two leads. I guess by your definition, this would be a 6 prong switch. I would use a center off momentary switch such as this: [url]https://www.surpluscenter.com/item.asp?UID=2252010612053034&item=11-2280&catname=[/url] Click on "More Specs" tab at the above site. You would want to connect +12V and ground wires to terminals 2 & 5 (either way), connect the two leads from the motor to 1 &4, and connect jumper wires from terminals 1 to 6 and from 3 to 4. The momentary switch will allow you to hold the switch in either direction until the chute is in the desired position. Glen

Thats if the motor is grounded thru the blower housing...if the motor has its own ground wire you need the other style...I went thru this last year...

Most of the surplus gearmotors that I have seen are the two-wire type, not single-wire and a ground connection for which you would need the DPDT switch. Glen

FYI - For spout rotator and lift motors, Maynard explains both switch / motor set-ups here with the diagrams: [url]http://www.simpletractors.com/club2/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=44562[/url] (For all you search doubters: A narrowed search engine setting found this in 9.62 seconds!!!)
