    Default K&T 2D knee motor removal

    I have recently acquired a K&T 2D. I am in the process of converting the electrics so that I can run it off a single phase. The spindle motor already has a VFD, and the (custom) Y feed is on a single phase DC drive. I am going to add three further VFDs to control the rotary, X and knee motors. The rotary and X motors are identical and include diagrams to allow me to rewire them from high voltage (wye) to the low voltage (delta) that I need for the VFD. The knee motor doesn't have such a diagram, so I was thinking of dropping the motor so that I can have a better look, rather than being upside down under the machine. Has anyone dropped the knee motor and has any tips? I'm guessing it just drives a bevel gear on the knee shaft. The parts manual and operating manual don't show the knee lift so I can't see for sure.
