    If you read the sticky on the "generic 2HP DC" you will see how its done. For the motor to hang from below the existing opening in the filter bag housing cannot be used and a new opening has to be opened up on the other side of the housing. The sticky also explains why this needs to be done.

    You could of course just lift and bolt the motor/impeller up to the existing flange on the filter bag housing with the motor sticking out the side like it is now - however, this will make it quite unstable.

    Come to think of it the whole idea of lifting up the motor and attaching it to the filter bag housing on the generic 2HP DCs was because most used 5" flexy between the impeller and filter bag housing, so the idea was to open up the transition to at least the same size of the opening in the impeller.

    Given your DC does not use flexy and the ducting between the impeller and filter bag housing is already maxed out to the same size as the impeller exis I would leave it as if. The gain from lifting up the impeller/motor will be small compared to the improvement obtained by opening up the impeller entrance. I think I just saved you a hell of a lot of work.

    oh Bob I knew Id seen something about opening up but Ive consumed so much over the past few days I dont weather I am Arthur or Marther, the wife is sure who I am though

    but I was thinking earlier about the bag housing of twisting it over 180* so the throat was on the left side...but I like your suggestion even more thanks mate

    Do you ever get tired of the repetitive questions that you seem to go over and over ?
