How to wire an electric motor?

Ok, so its another winch related question...sorry. I'm still workin' on getting this big Ramsey pulling. Anyhow, the motor has 3 stud terminals on it. Two are close to the shaft end of the winch, 1 is at the opposite end. It appears as though the lone terminal is the ground, and that the first two terminals are both for forward and one for reverse. Is that correct? The wiring job on it was pretty hack, so I want to make sure I've got it right. In case it matters, it's a Ramsey RE8000 low mount industrial 12v winch.

Currently looking for corporate sponsors for jeep improvements...will sell advertising space on jeep, will also sell soul/body...make an offer.
