I have this old Westinghouse motor it turns clockwise and I need counter clockwise. It has 3 leads at a junction on the rear, 2 line and 1 middle lead labeled 0.

enter image description here

Anyone know how to help?
It is a 110v 3/4 hp single phase motor model 89z123a.

    \$\begingroup\$ @HelenaWells - changing the polarity of an AC source would have no effect. \$\endgroup\$ – brhans Jul 24 '20 at 19:23

    \$\begingroup\$ Can you take a better picture that clearly shows which wires are the incoming AC Mains and which wires come from inside the motor? You may have to move some wires up so that it is clear where they go. \$\endgroup\$ – Dwayne Reid Jul 24 '20 at 19:26
  • \$\begingroup\$ @DwayneReid looks like the power cable wires have lugs crimped on the ends \$\endgroup\$ – jsotola Jul 24 '20 at 19:45
