    Agree with ballengerb1 but look at the plate where the wiring goes to the motor, some older ones will show CW and CCW connections. Depending on what you are driving, you may be able to swing the motor around and drive it from the other side.

    How many wires does the motor have?

    If it is PSC and 3 wire you can flip two of the wires.

    If it is shaded pole sometimes you can flip the stator around.
