I'm not sure if that motor is reversible but in this application it is not. I believe
it has brushes - the one I used to own smelled like an old drill motor. There is a large
resistor and switches used to slow the speed just as the tonearm starts to lower. Be sure
these switches are operating correctly or you will ruin needles and record edges quickly
as it slams down.

I have a Mills Do Re Mi that is without a selection
(carousel) drive motor. I have acquired one but need help wiring it in. The motor has four
wires (two of course for the AC). Any diagram or drawing directing me where each of
these go would be appreciated.
Service manuals are available here:
Generally speaking, AC motors with four wires are often reversible.
Power is applied to two wires. A capacitor is switched in to the other
pair of wires to change directions. Seeburg used this setup for decades.
I have no idea about the Mills specifically, but when you get the manual
it should help.
