    I have a wayne dalton garage door motor and I want to bypass the remote with a toggle switch to control forward and reverse (up and down). I'm not sure where to connect my switch and to which wires do I connect.

    The attachment point is on the control board not the motor.
    More than likely needing (expecting) a momentary signal.

    Or are you taking it all apart and not using it on a garage door opener.
    If so specs of toggle switch will be needed too..

    I would say neutral to yellow, live to blue,or red for direction. Can you not download the manual for that model?

    Looking at the motor image and the large cap this is what I see:

    AC Motor Reverse.png

    The drawing is rough but I believe you have an AC motor that uses a cap to reverse direction. There is what looks to be a big can AC cap in the images. The motor tag shows a cap and that is a common AC motor color scheme for motors of this type. Since you only want the motor I would wire it as shown. I based the line, neutral and ground color scheme on common US AC 120 VAC mains. I am also not sure about forum TOS as we are dealing with AC mains power here. Anyway, this is my guess.
