    My friend had to replace his motor on his byers spreader. The motor terminals are marked 1 & 2. Does the red go to the 1 or 2? Which way should the spinner turn?
    He took it apart awhile ago and had to replace the motor but can't remember which way to hook it up.

    Red should be hooked to the #1 post, at least on mine it is.Standing behind the spreader,the spinner should turn counter clock wise.If it doesnt just reverse the wires.

    He put the red to the #1 but standing behind the truck the spiner turns clockwise. It comes around from the pass side towards you heading to the drivers side. This is the first snow this year so he thought it's either the direction of the spinner or the bags(which have very fine salt in them) causing the slow spreading action.

    My fisher tailgate turns clockwise. so we thought that it was correct.

    Thanks for the reply

    My Buyers spins counter-clockwise. You need to make sure it is spinning in the proper direction so the auger is pulling the salt down to the spinner. Working against the auger will cause slow spreading.. Run it with the top off and see which way the auger is turning.

    On mine the red wires on the no. "1" post and it turns counter clockwise as looking in the top of the hopper.

    He switched the wires and it's CCwise now. Thanks, it's working fine now. The red is going to #2 now, probably because it's an aftermarket motor.
