Motor help

I've built a 2x72 grinder. I had, for a very brief time, a treadmill motor powering it, which crapped out on me nearly instantly. I've gotten a 1.5HP AC motor, that previously ran a mill, that can be wired for 110 or 220. I've opened up the panel on it, and now I'm not sure how to proceed. Looking at various how-to's online seems to be of little help, as the arrangements are different for the various examples provided. Also, the diagrams on the panel don't seem to specify voltage and direction of spin.

I'd like to wire this for 110v, and to spin counter clockwise. Any help would be appreciated. Photos of panel and wiring diagrams follow. [bonus: my toes]
