I need to know what wires connect to plug?i keep shorting out
The green wire is the ground and connects to the rounded pin on the plug. The red wire connects to the 120V power and the black (or white) wire is the neutral. If you have no red wire it is whatever is left after the black (or white) and green are connected.
The neutral and the black may connect to the same place in the tool but the purpose of the ground is to keep you from being shocked if the 120V connection inadvertently touches the case of the tool. In the tool make sure the green is connected to the case of the tool,

Where is the blade lock button on a skilsaw 5150 2
First, there is no blade lock button on the Skil model 5150. I called the Skil customer service and they emailed me the exact manual for this circular saw. The method I used to loosen a VERY TIGHT blade stud was: spray with WD-40, imbed the blade in scrap wood, set Skil wrench (usually found in back of foot under handle) on so it could be struck going in counter-clockwise direction. Use hammer to strike handle of wrench a couple of times. To replace blade, finger-tighten blade stud, then use wrench to tighten 1/8 turn or (45°).
