Replacing a Rheem indoor blower motor

I recently purchased a replacement indoor blower motor for my Rheem RRKA series gas pack/ac unit, but found that the new replacement motor had two wires that went to the capacitor(labeled "sep. cap") unlike the original motor which had only one wire that went to the capacitor(labeled "cap). Now I am attempting to find out how to wire in this new motor. I'm guessing it is probably an easy fix for a tradesman, but I'm not a HVAC technician, so any help anyone could provide would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your question! If the new replacement motor has 2 capacitor wires and you are using a dual capacitor, you will only be using one of the wires. The two capacitor wires should be brown in color and one of them will have a white stripe on it - You will need to connect the solid brown wire to the capacitor and cap the brown wire with the white stripe.

You can check the video which Skip has mentioned, after watching the video still you face problem then call a technician. I have read in an informative post that the proper installation increase efficiency of system and proper installation can be done by a technician only.
