    I assume this is a B.E. motor? Swap the red and black wries on the switch. I believe its 1 and 3.
    Don't mind me, what you read is invisible.

      That will fix it! Change the wires around!

        Just in case the wires are colored incoreectly, which I have seen. You should have 4 spaid terminals on that board. 2 are incomming power (I have seen these rings, but that just makes things harder to work on) the other 2 are the ones you reverse.

              <font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">HUH?? i didnt think the red went to the start switch on a back end motor??? it goes to the start capacitor..

              You should have 4 wires for single voltage or 6 wires for dual voltage

              i think its about 4 ohms for your start windings and approx 2.8 or there abouts for your run.

                  Heres a tip i learnt J-man when putting another b/e stator on a gearbox disconnect the dizzy drive shaft before switching on power to test directional run of the motor.

                  Cheers Brett
