    You may have a special version, in which there is non-standard programming.

    Otherwise, there may be a code that must be entered to get further in the parameters. That should be listed in the...

    I really SHOULD close this thread for a worthless and meaningless title.

    But I fixed your title because I still could.

    Do not know their stuff well..

    In a complete RPC (I think they sell complete units as well as panels), the idler would be larger, and/or made to have lower impedance, so it would not limit the...

    Like I said, you are right about most.

    Some, including a little Briggs I have, have the inlet turn upward again, so the inlet is above the carb, and it COULD fill up. Maybe. Or suck in a...

    with updraft, the inlet would have to go up above the manifold, so that the gas would not just drain out the intake and air cleaner.

    Could happen, not a biggie as to possibility in many because of...

    The voltage drop is due to "impedance", whch is resistance and inductance. Those do not change with voltage, since you are not changing connections, you are using a 460V unit on 230V..

    hah... great idea.... the "rabbet ring", kinda like a torque plate, make to fit the bell, hold by that, with the bell screwed down to it. Worth it if you get a bunch of them of the same size.

    A smallish rectangular opening with 4 screw holes?

    If so, it is for the power switch. I'm betting the 210 either is a FrankenLogan, made of random Logan parts, or else one built early, possibly...

    One thing is that older motors have very well-placed insulation. So they suffer less from issues like corona and arc-over due to beugng driven by a VFD. Newer motors, other than VFD rated, may...

    Agree about a proper replacement part from the OEM. That keeps the UL on the switch unit, which you need in a workplace.

    But, for this type of thing, where the lever carries contacts, you want...

    Many suggest lower rpm with the idea that it may be quieter. That is possible, as the higher rpm can make more noise from the internal fan etc since it is running twice as fast. I have a 3600 rpm...
