Stamped steel DC Westy...running clockwise; swapped leads on the rectifier...no change!Is there any fix short of removing and flipping the stator?  
Thanks! Chuck

For example, can I swap the brush holders across the back of the fan? That does work in series wound ceiling fans...why not a stamped steel buzz fan?

Sealed and re-soldered leads on opposite brush holders...runs great counter-clockwise!!
Thanks for the encouragement, Randy!
