Bench Grinder Wiring Diagram

I have a Craftsman 8" bench grinder M# 152.211580 that I need a wiring diagram for. My father tried to re-wire it so that the light would go on and off with the grinder and after getting into it, decided that wouldn't work. He tried to put it back the way it was but now it just runs backwards. :/

Thank you for your request for a wiring diagram for this grinder.

I am sorry but I do not have the specific wiring diagram for your model grinder. The manufacture is no longer in business.

What I do have is a similar model diagram that may help you with your wiring issue.

He may have reversed the two black wires and that is why it is running backwards.

I will include it in the image below.
