The "old" 3-wire cord had 2 "hot" wires and a ground. The "new" cord has 2 "hot" wires, a ground, and a neutral. If this does not help, call an Electrician....pkazsr The only advantage I see for doing this would to be able to access a four wire receptacle.Buy a four wire cord connect the red and black wires to the motor starter termianls or pressure switch, connect the green(ground) to the ground terminal. You have no need for the white wire,tape the end up and stuff it in to the terminal box.
