  • B/E Motors

    How can I tell what motor goes on a Even or Odd Machine without turning on the motor? I have national motor heads. Or does anyone know if they can be reversed to run the opposit way?
    There is always more to life, but would someone tell me what it is!

    You can't tell BECAUSE they can be reversed.
    So it goes.

      Lampie,

      Didn’t we go over this before? 220V Nationals probably can be reversed but 115V [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/wink.gif[/img] OEM Nationals can’t unless they have been rewound to do so. Aftermarket replacements for the Nationals can be reversed.

      Table Head , Your going to have to plug it in to determine the direction. We always mark our heads odd or even machine.

          HMMMumbleMuble..
          I will do 50 push ups for my mistake.
          Thought it was Pinhead or Headpin from Australia where they have 223V:p. Sorry, don't hit me.
          Maybe he has Leasons...Ok, I shut up
          I'm a bit reversed myself lately.
          So it goes.

                To bad The mechanic before my didn't mark it! What a Dumb $@!. I mark mine now because of his mistake. Bowlingpinman, I've got a bench test cord problem is they have to be assmebled and have SS starters put on. The Centrifical switches are shot.

                  In Australia, many of us use 110V (stepped down from 240V mains), and most of our BE Nationals - unless rewound - can't be reversed.

                  And, in my experience, we rarely rewind them (cos they're so good I suppose) - at least compared to GEs.

                  On a few occasions someone has marked a GE motor with the direction and then changed the direction without changing the marking!

                  We have a socket on our workbench to plug the motor into so Nationals are easy to test the direction on. GEs have to be on their gearbox to run, so it isn't as fun in that case (especially if some twit reversed it and didn't change the direction marking).

                  We had a GE with a reverser switch on it - that was cool. But we don't have it anymore (not sure where it went).

                  Andrew.

                      tablehead,if you have any nat.heads that the windings are bad ,you can send in to stahls.they send you back a head rebuilt with a box on top that has the plug,cap,klixion,and a motor start relay in it that takes care of having to have an electric or centrifical meck.......i also use motor start relays for all my front motors.i mount them on machine.if during league the motor pops klixion cause relay goes bad just hook another one up....3 wires...couple minutes tops.......if my be.nat. are bad windings i send in for the trade....if switch or mech problem i wire in a sinpac switch also get from stahls........

                          Get this everyone I noticed something the other day when I was doing some motor repair. There is a AMF sticker on one side of the start capacitor. When on the machine it faces the bowlers indicating which way it turns. I found this out after I put a few motors back to gether to test them out which way they turn. But bad luck if you daon't have any stickers on them. I've get 24 motors and they all check out the way I descibed
