I have a reliance dc motor, I have leads a1,f1,f2,s1,s2 these leads are coming from the power source and from the motor. I had someone un hook this motor for me and they did not identify which wire went to what. This person does not remember how they were when it was taken apart. Can someone please help me with this.

You're missing a lead, A2
A1 & A2 are the armature.
F1 & F2 are the field.
S1 & S2 are probably a temperature switch.
I assume this was connected to a DC drive? what model?
