Hey guys, this motor is reversible. I have it wired to turn clockwise(according to diagram),
green to ground;
L1 (black) to P1;
L2 (white) to T2-T4-T8;
P2-T3-T5 together .
When I plug it in, the motor turns counter clockwise and the on/off switch does not work. How do I fix?

I'm not sure I understand your question.
To get the impellar off of the shaft, leave the motor bolts on.
Open the back end of the motor, there should be a slot in the motor shaft. Use a screwdriver to hold the shaft from rotating and grab the impellar and rotate it counterclockwise to unscrew it.
It sounds easy, but the impellar is probably somewhat corroded on.

Can't do it electrically. See if you can flip the armature and use that in that direction [bit of a long shot here - sorry]
