I am looking for an auto reversing electric motor

I am looking for a motor that auto reverses. I need to hook it to a pulley system that once the line runs out it reverses back to rewind the line back up?
Are you designing the controls for this application yourself or are you replacing parts in an existing system?
As long as the motor's rotation can be electrically reversed, the correct relays/starters and switches in their correct spots will do the trick for you.

WIRING FOR MODEL 6K845A?

WAS GIVEN A EXAUST FAN SETUP FOR MY SHOP. IT WAS HARD WIRED BEFORE. I WENT TO PUT ON A NEW PLUG BUT THERE IS 2 BLACK WIRES AND ONE GREEN??? I TOOK OFF THE PLATE ON MOTOR TO EXPOSE CONECTIONS. WHAT # IS LIVE AND SO ON.
It is very possible the motor is of a shaded pole type (single-speed). Basically, it doesn't matter which one is connected to hot or netral, as long as you are providing 115V and the supply wires are sized correctly.

how to wire a 1/10hp 60hz ccw 115v 4.8A MOTOR

Motor Replacement
If the replacement motor has the same color/quanity wires then reconnect to make sound electrical connections. If the wires on new motor are different, then this is the rule of thumb: the white motor lead is neutral - usually connects to the white from the panel, green is ground - usually connects via an eyelet from a ground to a bare copper, and the black/blue/red are the speed windings from high to low on a multi-speed motor. The hot wire (usually a black coming from a circuit breaker) going to one of the colored leads is very likely to be switched and/or an in-line speed control could be installed at this point.
New Install
If this is new installation, the electrician will bring in the correct power wires and prep the installation to be to code. If you are left with wiring the motor from that point on then refer above for which motor leads to connect to what.
