Default Help wiring a vintage fan.

This is a Kenmore 50s fan. Its a three speed and the speed coil is in the head or stater. The wiring was bad so I did not get to write down the way they hook up. I put color shrink tub on the four wires to make it easy. So I did an ohms reading on the four to the head. They are as follows
Red to black 5.5
Red to green 24.6
red to white 36.5
black to green 20.7
black to white 32.5
green to white 13.5

So I am not sure how to figure out from here what one is neutral, high low medium. Thanks for any guidance.

Default Re: Help wiring a vintage fan.

Hi there & welcome to the forum.
On those resistances, it would seem to me that the correct sequence is:

Red High
Black Med
Green Low
White Neutral
