    Keep adding oil? Sorry, couldn't resist.

    I've rebuilt many an engine with rope seals. The best thing to do is to pack as much rope into the groove as you can. carefully use a punch to keep...

    Also, the SCR panel will almost always be in the center of the counterweight, or in a panel at the bottom of the machine between the wheels opposite whichever side has the hydraulic tank. The most...

    If what you have on the accelerator is a pot about the diameter of a quarter that has 2 or 3 wires to it, connect a voltmeter between the two wires, or if it's 3 wire, from the center wire to either...

    Don't know if you've got this figured out by now, but it could be the poly tires deteriorating. This will happen more if the lift isn't used a lot and the tires are old. If it sits for a while, the...

    The tag on the spindle motor.
    The end of the rectifier, which I incorrectly identified as a resistor earlier.
    The back of the lathe.
    The taper attachment.
    The transformers.

    A coal fired steam engine? Geez, how about moving up a couple of centuries, a natural gas fired steam engine would be much more environmentally friendly! LOL!!!

    Hi Bill, AKA hitandmiss

    Thanks, good info about the transformers & rectifier, which I looked at today and discovered was, in fact, a rectifier, not a big ol' resistor as I had earlier thought. I...

    I didn't notice that the motor is 550 volts. I thought they were 440 or 220 only. Any idea why? I've never seen 550 volts anywhere.
    Well, that narrows down my options...and raises the cost. :(

    Hey Bill,

    Here are some pics. The contactor, etc. is still in place as you'll see, just jumped out. The Jefferson nameplate is for the transformers on the input side, there are two as per my...

    Cal,

    I too thought the transformers may be for bucking power, but the 10EEs were 440/220 volt machines, and one of the input legs actually bypasses the transformers. Doesn't seem to make sense to...

    Here's what I know about this particular unit.
    It is a round dial, M-G machine, MFGR'S # is 25476, build date:...
