Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! The motor has to turn in CCW direction as view from shaft end, where pulley goes. The caption for changing a motors direction has to be on the motor! All motors are not alike. Do you see any diagram on the motor where the connections are? The input to the field coils has to be reversed to change the direction. Do you have a motor make and model number?
