As stated, since it’s wired 220V, you have two hots (white and black) and a ground(green). There is no neutral wire in your setup. You need to make sure that your new “Twist Lock” plug fits your shop receptacle. Make sure the power is off to the breaker before you test it. It doesn’t matter which way you wire the two hots, as long as they are wired to X & Y, and not to ground.
