So, now I'll have to figure out how to connect them in parallel. Time to read up on basic electrical theory.
Could you post photos of the connector block and the markings on the motor? If it is a dual voltage motor that makes it very easy to change over. I am puzzled as you have said in the first post that the linkages are missing and blanck holes instead of pins?
A dual voltage motor should have 4 pins (excluding the 2 used to connect the mains lead) and 2 linkages in the connector block. The instructions about how to connect the inkages are on the block cover. For 110/120 volts operation, pin 1 and 2 are connected to each other with one linkage while the other is used to connect pin 3 to 4. For 220/240 volts both linkages are used to connect pin 2 to 3.
Hope this helps,
