What wires do I need to switch to make an AO Smith motor (922L) run the opposite direction?

I can not give you an exact answer as the diagram is not available on AOSmith's website. Generally speaking the wires are a black and a red. It should describe to you the process on the motor nameplate in the bottom right corner. If you are still unable to reverse it, please reply with a comment that includes the motor serial number and I will go to AOSmith's tech support and get the diagram that way.

Century 1HP electric motor Part #8-1286037-20 Type CX Frame L56C Serial BM9-142 I am missing the wiring diagram and want to convert it from 110v to 220v...

Why do want to change it? It won't save you any money, run it on 120 volts unless it's a long distance run and voltage drop is a concern.
