I found a Leland Faraday Electric lfc-504 4 terminal per side (8 total). The only markings on it are 5hp and 220 - 575 volt. Right now I have a 3 terminal reversing drum switch but I need another drum switch for my 1 phase 2 hp mill. Will this new switch work or is it only for 3 phase?

Thanks, Ryan

Leland-Faraday became part of Essex.

Drum switches are still made brand-new - by OTHERS - with published technical information, and even "how to wire" videos on You tube:

Type A and B Reversing Drum Switches | Schneider Electric USA

Drum Switches - Grainger Industrial Supply

Just compare the one you have with what is documented as to contact form, size, and arrangement.

You'll soon have your answer.
