:welc: I agree it probably spins the wrong way. Even connecting it backwards won't make it reverse. Possibly if you used your original brush holder it would reverse.

The original field type starter would have to have the brush polarity reversed. Like Dave said the end cap/brush holder. If you had a permanent magnet type starter it would run backward by reversing polarity. I am not sure just changing the end plate will give you the results you are looking for. It should go in the opposite direction but I am not sure about the timing between the field and armature being optimum???
