Swapping the connections of the starting winding wires should do the trick.

I believe those are the two green wires in your pic, but I can't tell for certain. The starting winding wires usually go from the windings to a capacitor or centifugal switch.

Check this out. The diagrams are crappy, but it might help explain the concept...

Thanks Jake. So if I've found the centrifical switch, it's simply a matter or swapping the wires. I'll try it tonight.

Yep, that's what it looks like to me. It's a little different than the motors I've worked with, but same principle should apply. Typically you'll have 4 wires going into the windings, 2 for the starting windings that go to either a capacitor or a centrifugal switch, then two wires for the running windings that go to the main power source. From the photo, it looks like the black wires are going to the main power source for the running windings, and the two green wires are for the starting windings going to a switch of some sort.

Basically how it works is that the power is directed throught the starting windings until the motor reaches a certain speed, then the centrifugal switch kicks and the motor continues to run on the running windings from that point on. The direction of the current through the starting windings determines the direction of rotation.

Sorry I missed this one Rick I am an electrician. Definitely swaping the wires should have worked.

You knew about the capacitor and the basic principals of the motor operation that was better than hack.
