Starter/generator Q

Is there a way to reverse rotation on a starter generator? I have 2 good CW rotation ones and am needing a counter CW rotation one for a cub cadet. Is it just a matter of opening it up and switching a couple of wires from the fields around or is there more to it?

Nope, the field coils and possibly more have to be replaced, so easier just to buy a correct unit. I asked the guy local who does starter repair and he told me it isn't simple.
