I think this is the info you were talking about:

Changing an induction motor voltage - The Australian Electric Vehicle Asn - Page 1

I took apart one of my AC motors and was able to identify the coils using their instructions. I did not get the coils separated, or connected in parallel, or the motor oversped.

Interesting thread. I think that there is a project that is using that method to get extra power out of a quad electric conversion
