need help with baldor motor rewire!!!

Many years ago I rewired my wilton square wheel from 110v to 220v and now need to wire it back to 110v-I opened it up and I must have been smarter back then as I can't figure out how to get it back to 110v. I also rewired my Kalamazoo 1x42 1sm and just won't make sense any more-I have the high and low voltage wiring specs but they dont coincide with what I have wired- anyone out there have some ideas for me please.
I can share pictures if nessy. thanks,rex

Am at my wits end, I hate to ask but if someone has a kalamazoo or wilton that is wired for 110v, if you could open the cover and let me know what wires are connected it would help greatly. I know this is a lot to ask and everyone is very busy right now but it would be of great help as i don't know where else to turn and I am trying to get my shop back to running after a year and a half being in boxes and need a knife fix badly! thanks, rex

What wires do youo have inside the pecker head as options? Shouldn't be to hard to get you running.

well just blew out my shop circuit breaker after a rewire try and decided to get back on to see if any reply-thank you for your interest-haven't been able to post pictures but---
the kalamazoo has yellow#4 and red #8 and white together--white #2 black #5 and orange #3 together-red and blue #1.

the wilton has white "A" and blue #1--black #5 orange #3 and white #2 together-
black "B" and yellow #4 together--red #3 and brown "J" together

the kalamazoo is suposed to be #1&#3&#8-#4&#5&#2

the wilton is suposed to be #3&#8&#2-#4&#5 and #1 alone

I tried to wire it as per the diagram but blew the circuit breaker after i tried to turn it on-
any help will help greatly-

o.k. so the wiring diagram on the motor is wrong and why I couldn't get it going.
the correct wiring is #1&#3&#5& the unmarked red wire
#2&#4&#8& the unmarked white wire.
this is on the kalamazoo but the wiring is basicly the same for the wilton.
it's unfortunate I have had to go back to 110v after enjoying the 220v for so many
years as there is such a big differance in performance.
Thanks for trying to help.

I'm glad it is fixed. I was looking for some wire triggers, by the way, something from xps
