If you were to look at the drive end of the motor and hook it up to the battery the shaft would turn "clockwise". Both Fisher and Western turn the same. :rolleyes: John

try looking at the power cables. If the power and ground are backwards where they plug together the motor will run backwards. A telltale sign is usually the motor will stay running until you unplug the power cable. Sometimes from the vendor the plug ends are molded on backwards. I have personally seen this a few times. Good luck
