    I'm sorry. I could do this, but typing it out everything I put on the screen just looks like I'm about to get you or the motor burnt or up in smoke. If you weren't so far away...

    When it comes to the starter, I'd go with something in a NEMA size 2, size 1 will work but if you get a voltage drop during startup the arc...
