you got the wrong motor on there. You need a reversible motor. They have more leads that connect to the start winding. Sounds like someone slapped "just another motor" on there and it just isn't going to work. The other wires from the switch don't go anywhere do they?

110v motors aren't normally user reversible. A motor shop might be able to pull the start winding connections out intot hte terminal box so that it can be done though.

:bang::bang::bang:

And here I thought I didn't have it wired up right. *sigh*

Alas, I do have another 1HP motor. And I know this one is reversible because it says "to reverse motor" right on it. I just wanted this one to work because it's really a pain getting motors in and out of that lathe base.

Thank you for clearing that up Man. I'll post a picture of the other motor tomorrow and see if you guys can solve it's problem as well.:(

Thanks.

Holy crap, Good lord, OMG! I think I might have it boys!!!! BUt I want you to look at the set up first. This is the data plate on the other motor I told you guys about..........

And this is the wire set up.......

https://i367.photobucket.com/albums/o...P9220280-1.jpg

The Red wire is T2
The Green wire is T5
The Yellow wire is T3
The other colors are just for reference

As you can seen, not all of the labels are on the wires. I want the know if you guys think that set up looks right? It is running strong, and in the right direction. But she seems to have slight buzz that seems alittle off. It might just be from age or how it's supposed to sound, I just want to make sure. Keep in mind I'm running off of 110. I'd post a video, but PB is REALLY SLOW right now for me.

Thanks.

Big motors tend to hum due to the resonance of the coils.

PAINTBALL GUY 3 09-26-2011 08:29 PM

Well all is good then because she's all hooked up and running strong! :clapping: Now I need to get a hold of the proper oil and we can get some brass turned!

Thank you all very much for the help. I guess I just needed to let the data simmer up there first eh?:rolleyes:

Thanks.

Good to hear man. Make sure to tape up the connectors before your done, we use rubber splice tape and black electrical tape to finish up the splice......

Motors make noise. Little motor make little noise... Big motors make you deaf :D
