built in bias
These motors have a built in bias for rotating in one direction caused by the construction of the field. If the motor is not too high a HP rating, you can mechanically rotate it the other way before applying the power and sometimes it will run backwards. Your best bet is to use some form of gearing or rubber wheels to mechanically change the rotation of an output shaft.
