Can anyone help with wiring a capacitor problem?

I have a 110v Marin Aire water pump. When it stopped working I opened the end cap and saw that a wire had come loose. The trouble is, I don’t know how to wire it back together with the capacitor and there’s nothing on the Google that appears to help. Can anyone give me any guidance as to how it should be wired? Any help is much appreciated. .

Pump: Yellow, red and black wire.
Capacitor: Grey and Grey.

The hanging cap lead in all probability connects to the incoming live, (black) conductor.
Measure the resistance between the 3 wires into the motor.

Like I said, measure the resistance of all three motor conductors to be sure, you should have a common and two windings, one higher resistance than the other, or even two of equal resitance.
