Hi Gigabit878,

In a three phase induction motor, reversing any two of the three wires will change the rotation direction.

In a single phase induction motor, the direction is controlled by a starting capacitor. Change the pole on which it it placed will reverse the direction it starts and then runs in.

For synchronous motors, a shading ring (often copper) is placed on one of the armatures - swap the ring location to the opposite armature..

For universal motors, swap the wiring of the brushes.
