Default Information required on wiring a GE motor.

I purchased an IME lathe complete with a 1950's/60's General Electric motor and capacitator. The board the motor and lathe were situated on was a tad tatty, so I decided to make a new one. During the course of which I had to disconnect the wiring and made a diagram of where the three wires were attached. Unfortunately, this diagram was inadvertently lost.
I would therefore be grateful for any advice on how to reconnect the wiring on the motor. I enclose images of the motor and capacitator situated on my new board. There are three wires emanating from the motor, the colours being brown, blue and yellowish light brown.( the latter hue may be the result of fading) The brown and blue wires have spade connectors which I presume are attached to the capacitator which has two posts, each with two connectors to take the spade connectors, but I don't know which one goes where. The other yellowish brown wire doesn't have a connector and I presume this is the live feed which connects to the switch.

The data on the motor reads;-
General Electic,
HP 35M RP11 1600/1300 V.230
AO 25/ 0.31 CY 60/50 PH1
Time Rating. CONT.

The capacitator,
68 12 60cy
Made in USA,
49E615 151
5UC 370V

I thank you in advance for any assistance that may be able to be afforded me on this matter.
