how do i wire a 480 volt timer?

the wiring diagram on the timer is very sketchy. I am wiring a intermatic 480 timer to a three phase pump. Do hot legs go to both the line terminal and the common terminal, and the load terminal go to the coil? I have 480 accross the line and the common terminals so I think it should work, but the clock doesn't turn.

    Something using 480v, is normally in a commercial/industrial application, If you don't know what you are doing leave it to someone who does, 480v can kill you quickly, and if you wire it wrong could cost you or a company a lot of $$. This is NOT a DIY Project
