    Nice score! I was servicing the boomlift last week and looked up info on the Fairfield torque hubs, was surprised to see that they are now a part of Oerlikon.

    Pretty sure most treadmill motors are brush type, only possibility I can think of is an out rotor dc motor, but I'd have to check to verify if they are brushed/brushless.

    If you post a WTB ad it is basically inviting the scammers to contact you, especially if its high dollar item that they can google to find a pic of.

    In theory that should stop it, in the real world without enforcement, not so much.

    That is why I said talk to racers and restorers, not high school kids or the corner auto repair shop. A lot of smaller shops have disappeared, but from what I've seen the shops with a good reputation...

    Use the rocker to raise or lower, if that does not work, make a spacer or use some large washers to bring it up. That right there is why lantern posts suck:D

    Talk with some of the local racers and restorers, find out what shop they use. To the best of my knowledge there are no forums dedicated to automotive machining, no idea why.
