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

Hmmm. Some interesting theories! I can see the difficulty with a 180 degree phase shift if the thing has to rotate. I've briefly applied ~110V in various configurations with no result, neither rotational nor concerning. A capacitor appears the next step. Could I parallel some 0.47F X-types just to see if it turns, as I haven't any F level film caps? I've eased the rear bearing as it was very stiff to turn by hand.

Would this be live - winding A - winding A1 - capacitor - winding B - winding B1 - neutral? A series connection with the capacitor between the two windings?
