Need wiring diagram for a single phase brook motor n a broomwade compressor

I suggest you contact Brooks if they are still in business. If not there is lots of motor info on the net.

Traditional single phase motors are fairly straightforward and similar to each other. The main thing to watch out for is to have the start and run windings wired with the same polarity. If the polarity is reversed on either winding the motor will run backwards.

Why is my1 1/2 hp sprinkler pump pumping OUT intake with no elec changes?

I am not sure, but DC motors will run backwards if the polarity of the incoming voltage is switched. I see this is an AC motor but they always run forward no matter the polarity, unless the polarity is reversed to the right wires inside the motor. The second link has a discussion on exactly how to do that. Thus it may have your answer, that those wires got switched somehow on your motor. Which means you need to buy a new motor.

The hood fans seem to be running backwards. how is that possible on an ac motor?

any ac motor can go in reverse. The direction is chosen by the direction of the start winding. reverse the polarity of the start winding where you see the 2 extra crimp connectors where you wired the motor just swap them

What to do when you reversed polarity on new battery

If you installed the battery backwards a lot of times the only thing that will happen is the starter will run backwards. Remove the battery, test for full charge, then reinstall properly. Usually no damage has been done. Start motor and check the function of all electrical components and check the charging system to be sure.
