    I like middle of nowhere.
    I like horses and farms.
    I like trees and rocks.
    I bet your sister is a good cook. :)
    Quit whining, things could be worse, you could be on fire.

    Thanks guys, the yellow is the start winding, black & red are run, time to call the electrician. Don't need fried, or wrecking anything.

    apparently not, I'm just going off of some of these info sites. I can't imagine there not being a ground some where, but I do know one thing, time to call someone that has the proper expertise.

    You need to take resistance measurements of all three wires, in relation to each other.
