To change rotation on a 3 phase motor, swap L1 with L3.

dayton 1 1/2hp 3 phase

my wires are in a series as follows coming in from my inverter. T7-T1, T8-T2, T9-T3. When swapping any 2 of these to try to reverse my motor, all my motor does is hum. the other wires coming from the motor tied together are T4-T5-T6. This is considered low voltage connection on the motor.

I think you misunderstood.

L1 to T1&T7
L2 to T2&T8
L3 to T3&T9
T4-T5-T6 together.

Switch L1 & L3

Now it should be L1 to T3&T9, L3 to T1&T7, L2 to T2&T8

just got the motor running in reverse. i misunderstood what you were telling me at first, but realized I was switching the wrong wires. when I switched the power leads going into the dayton motor it reversed. thank you for your help.

If you have an inverter (VFD) operating the motor, you can probably reverse it from the inverter. Every VFD I have seen will run either direction.
