  1. Thanks Bill I do not have the spindle motor out...

    Thanks Bill
    I do not have the spindle motor out yet and have guests here for the weekend. I hope to pull it out Sunday afternoon once they've left. I will post some pictures then.
  2. Motor/Exciter cleanup

    Now that I have the MG Unit out, I've cleaned it up pretty good. Taken all the grease fittings off and thoroughly cleaned them and inspected the motor inards as best I can without dis-assembling....

    This machine is a round dial delivered in Nov 1944 to Buick motors.

    And the MG Unit pulled right out using the "flat bar rails" onto an 18" long HF dolly. Easy as pie.

    Bill,

    Just getting started today on removing the MG unit but before I do I just want to clarify some items you noted above.

    See the following images:

    Left side of MG Unit

    "Those" refer to the original motor/pump or the second one you have?
    If you have the one from the 42 round dial, I'd probably prefer that. I can make a mounting bracket.

    I will email you.
  6. Coolant pump specs

    My lathe originally came with a coolant pump. Not that I really care, but I'd like to restore it as close to original spec as possible. I want to keep a look out for the pump/parts its missing. I...
  7. Glad to see you got it functioning properly!...

    Glad to see you got it functioning properly! that's great.
  8. Unknown part in coolant sump

    Does anyone recognize if this is a part from the 10EE? I found it in the coolant sump when I was cleaning it out. It has NTN stamped on it so it could be some kind of bearing retainer? (It has a set...

    Thermite,

    An excellent outline of steps, thank you. Going to be starting on it Monday
  10. Cal, Thanks for the detail, although it...

    Cal,

    Thanks for the detail, although it appears you didn't read my post which is the one right before yours. The micro switches work, I took them off their mounts and tried them individually by...
  11. I am not familiar with all the parts actual...

    I am not familiar with all the parts actual terms, what is the interlocker rod?

    I took the lever mount off the machine to test the micro switches. They do not appear to ever make contact with the...
  12. Cal, Any specific order of steps I should take...

    Cal,
    Any specific order of steps I should take to determine what's at fault?

    All the help I've gotten from you folks is greatly appreciated.
  13. As noted before, the apron, saddle and all three...

    As noted before, the apron, saddle and all three rods are off the machine.

    The L-N-R switch must be defective, since when its in R (can't get in L when its back in place) the MG should NOT turn on...
  14. Thermite, Great suggestion. I used a 1" 3 ft...

    Thermite,

    Great suggestion. I used a 1" 3 ft wooden dowel to push in the contactors and the spindle turns. I assume that now means there is something wrong with the micro switches
  15. Thermite, I did do all that. The knob,...

    Thermite,

    I did do all that. The knob, although it moves to the right does NOT appear to move the clutch mechanism at all.

    I also did not mention that the knob, when pulled out and turned to...

    The MG is running in the correct direction.
    On the MG panel in the front of the machine I read the following

    E1 to E2 reads 124VDC
    GA1 to GA2 reads 14.8VDC
    GF1 to GF2 reads .01VDC
    GS1 to GS2...
  17. I read through the post mentioned in the quote...

    I read through the post mentioned in the quote above and note the following:

    Checking the DC Panel
    In the AC panel the voltage between E1 and E2 was 120.8 VDC
    It was the same between E1 and E2...
  18. Ok. I've got the control unit running, it fires...

    Ok. I've got the control unit running, it fires right up, but I cannot get the spindle to run. I'm 90% certain I have all the knobs and levers in the correct positions. Please note that:

    A. I have...
  19. Dumb question I'm sure, but since I've never...

    Dumb question I'm sure, but since I've never operated lathe before and I have the saddle and apron removed, can I still engage the spindle from the headstock knobs/levers?
  20. Gear and directional knobs, levers

    So the machine fires up and the motor and exciter sound like they are in very good condition. Trying to determine if the gears in the headstock are functioning correctly. But before I did so, I was...
  21. Thanks. Now that I know its working, I need to...

    Thanks. Now that I know its working, I need to remove the motors and seriously clean the inards of this unit as there is a lot of grease, sludge, chips etc. I probably will not take the headstock...
  22. Well, these are amazingly well built machines....

    Well, these are amazingly well built machines. All original motor parts in this unit, and it powered right up. Who knows how long it really sat unused; but the seller had it in storage for two years...
  23. My three phase converter is getting installed...

    My three phase converter is getting installed today. Before I attempt to power up the machine and start it, is there anything I should know about the dial and gear settings? Since I have never...
