Default 2 speed motor wiring

A friend’s dad gave me this fan a year or so ago that was missing the motor. I finally found a suitable 1/2 horse 2 speed motor in an old washing machine to cobble together.

I have been reading and researching the wiring for the last two weeks but I still can’t wrap my head around it

I included a picture of how I have it wired right now. It starts and runs but when you shut it off the motor still tries to turn at a slow rpm. Until you unplug the cord or unplug the capacitor.
