    If you have 7 conductors then chances are this is a dual (120V/240V) capacitor start motor. For 120V operation you will have 2 (120V) field windings (Stators) wired in parallel. To reverse this kind of motor you only need to swap the polarity of the Start winding. The Start winding exhibits a much higher DC resistance than the Run windings and it also has the start switch and start cap in series with it, so it's not hard to identify it.
