    I am trying to figure out how to change the direction of a 2 RPM, AC, Synchronous-Reversible Holzer and Cabot Motor.

    Here is a wiring diagram and photo of the current setup:



    Basically I just need to figure out what kind of component I need to switch the direction of the motor. Something that can connect between the existing capacitor-switch setup and the motor would be best since I can get the correct outlet and plug for such a connection. I'm including a photo of the setup as-is in addition to the wiring diagram.

    Link to plug and outlet:

    Preferably the male plug would insert into the existing switch/capacitor box, connect to the direction changing component, which would connect to the female outlet, which would connect to the existing male plug (direct line to the motor).

    Thanks for you help!

    Measure the resistance between each of the three wires first.
