Hopefully it's OK if I resurrect this topic?
I've got one of these motors and was able to get it going using RegUS_PatOff's instructions. The first wiring he listed will turn clockwise.
I am hoping to install this motor in an old lathe, and had a couple of questions:
1. The motor jumps quite a bit at startup. Can I replace the start capacitor with a lower-rated one, and would this reduce that problem? Alternatively, would it hurt the motor to wire it without the cap and "bump start" it?
2. The motor is quite unwieldy. Is there a standard means of mounting motors like this when repurposing? I was thinking I could basically build a wooden "C" around it to hold it down, but I wondered if there is some better way. I want to attach it to a wooden lathe stand.
