First, obviously you'll need to remove the old wires from the motor. Be sure to count the number of turns around the armatuers as this will give you an idea of how to rewind the motor. The direction is not particularly important at ths point.

You will also want to note whether it is Delta or Wye terminated. A Wye terminated motor will have three wires going to a central point called the nuetral, which is not connected directly to a motor lead. A delta has no such connection, just three motor wires. Often the neutral point ona WYE has a piece of heatshrink over it to keep it from shorting to the stator.
