    To roll out the motor plate use a couple of pipes with wood blocks underneath to get the right height. If you search the forum you will find where I post the part number for the rubber isolators for the drive plate. Still a stock item called Chan L Mounts.

    The coolant tank is even easier. Nice work.

    How do you separate the drain tube from the tank? Looks like it might be an internal fitting sleeve that somehow lifts up?

    Unscrew the drain screen assembly from the top (in the coolant collecting area of the chip tray part of the bed casting). When you remove the drain, the skirt can come up too. The skirt between the drain and the top of the coolant tank is a piece of plastic.
    I couldnít get my drain fully dissembled from the top side, so I sacrificed the plastic piece. It was a super easy fix from a plastic container I had laying around.
    If I get time in between Thanksgiving cooking, Iíll send a pic.

    Here is the drain:




    Top removed. You can zoom in to see the plastic Ďconnectioní between the drain and the top of the coolant tank. I deleted the retaining nut for the drain screen. It wasnít needed (for me anyway).

    Got it out, what a mess!!!!
    Looks like I`m missing the screen assembly.

    Now I`ve got to get a sparky over here and check all 3 motor to see if they`re ok.

    Jabberwoki just pointed me to this thread after we exchanged a few emails. I suggested to him posting in the Monarch forum. I missed all of this since Iím always looking there for these posts. I see those that have helped me have also reached out.

    Iíve got serial 321 also with a production year of 1959.

    Your motor is definitely different than mine however.

    Have you powered anything up? I see your name plate says itís 440.

    Yep 440 and I`ve not powered it up as I want to go over all the electrical stuff first to make sure there are no problems before I put the 440 to it.

    Oh, and PLEASE go somewhere and get high quality scans of any documentation you have! Iím happy to reimburse you the cost. There are 2 documents floating around on Vintage machinery that are drawings/manuals for the Rivett 1020S/F. Unfortunately they seem to be cobbled together from different machines. Within the same document theyíll have wiring diagrams from obviously different machines.

    As you know Iím in the process of redrawing all the diagrams because the ones in the available documents on the Internet arenít completely legible. They are also missing some key sheets.

    Things to be aware of on the electrical side...

    Control motors apparently came in 110 and 220 single phase versions. Brakes apparently came in 220 single phase and 220 3 phase.

    Strongly suggest you check that itís actually wired for 440. Mine has 440 on the plate and was rewired for 220 at some point in its life.

    That brake looks in rough shape. Is the cover missing or did you just remove it? Can you verify the model number on it?

    Old Injun trick. Put 120 to it - only briefly - first. That'll ID any dead-shorts.

    Then 240. It may run.

    Yah go too frugal on yer testing time and start directly with 440 and it happens to have been re-wired for 220?

    Yah get frugaled, sure-as-dammit. And all too quickly!

    I am more than happy to pay for the high quality scans as well. Travis, if you want to split the cost, let me know.

    If it is 440, are you going to keep it 440 or convert to 220?
