    Need some more information on the motor. And did you check at the motor with a meter to confirm no power?

    Check inside the motor terminal box or "pothead" cover or name plate for a connection diagram. If there is none, I'd go back to the shop where it was rebuilt & ask them how to wire it up. I suspect it's getting power but it's hooked up wrong.

    Was gonna say something about Sh!t stirring, but I'll refrain.

    You may also want to get the shop to retest it as well, just to put your mind at ease, and to check that none of the smoke has been let out of it in the previous hook up attempts.
