Electric Motors/wiring DC motor repair reversing switch Kansas City motor repair


I need a wiring diagram. I have a forward reverse switch box,   110vac through a bridge rectifier to run a 110vdc motor

Jack,  I might need more specifics,    I understand the bridge  to get your DC,  but DC MOTORS come in all kinds of configurations      is it a wound field motor,  or a permanent magnet motor,   each has a different way to reverse

Here is a simple link to about the most simple of all reversing of a series motor or a rectified motor  with two leads,  if yours is more complex  get back to me with more details and I will help you get this wired up,
