By the whack!!! ("Impact Adjustment")

I like that. I usually describe it as "fine tuning" the system.

He performs an "impact adjustment."
Again, since we're in this for profit, how much should I charge for using the "Impact Adjuster"?
The capacitor in the starting winding causes a hesitation in the ac sine wave, effectively making the motor a two phase motor which gives it direction of rotation because the magnetic fields build up in the windings at different times. So, moving the capacitor to the run winding changes the direction; that is also why 3 phase doesn't need a start winding.
TO Fix does not allways mean repair,
