    I'm going to guess that is a DC motor, and it looks appropriate for the approximate year of the photo. Similar motors were used on planer infeed rolls due to their ability to vary speed.

    I grew up with Ross straddle carriers as they were all over the place in the mills in this area. Are these the machine you're referring to..not a forklift but a straddle carrier.

    Amazon has a cheapo bearing puller for $17 dollars..seems like a lot less effort than the "sticks $ towel" method, but I could be wrong.

    I have found several drive manufacturers that don't list single phase input capability on their drives, but when tech support is called, they advise that single phase input is possible.

    In my case, I've looked at them for 45 years so I sort of know how they work. I also spent a good part of my career screwing with Timesavers sanders (50hp) and I am a tad dubious you are going to get...

    Your plan is the way to go..a puller and a bit of heat, and they'll slide right off. The flanges look pretty husky so hooking the jaws over the edge should be fine..no bearing splitter needed.

    I haven't used the SW urethane's so I'm hesitant to recommend a hardener that is compatible. The Xylene is plenty hot enough in my opinion to give you a short dry time. As you mention, maybe you...

    Walter,

    I would say your motor is dropping below the start/run threshold as it comes under load. It drops RPM, hits the start winding and zooms back up. The motor is either too small for the...
