Default Wiring Help 230v ac 1phase motor

Hello everyone, I have an aircompressor with a blown motor. Have a spare motor but its wired to spin the wrong direction. Is there any way to reverse spin on the singler phaze? Also can anyone help explain the wiring.
There are 2 red and 2 black wires running out. They seem to be paired together. red and black both hooked to upper terminal marked L and other red and black both hooked to lower terminal marked 2. There are also 3 wires inside Black, yellow, green. They are plugged into the terminals as well.

General Electric AC Motor
1 phaze 60hz 1.5hp 230volt RMP 1725

Thank you in advance
