Default Re: Wiring a 110V two-phase motor?

I wondered that, but it doesn't look old enough to be genuine two phase. Do you think a capacitor is sufficient to create the phase shift? I suppose I was expecting it to say 'single phase' if it were to be run off normal AC, even with a capacitor. However, there's no difference in resistance to imply a start and run winding. Could I damage it hooking up a capacitor in series with one mains leg and one colour, putting one red to one black and the other mains to the remaining colour?
