    Thanks, Phil. It is a completely different motor than mine. Both are 2000 Watt, but mine is much earlier as it does not have a gearbox.

    Thanks for taking the toruble to dismantle it.

    Hi Phil,

    You may find difficulty (like I did) in taking apart the motor. The pulley is reverse thread (so it is loosened in a clockwise direction). If you cannot remove it, the length between...

    Yes, after eating 3 eggs. Most likely of the local Guinea Fowl who bulk lay (18 eggs counted) over the road. The number of these brown tree snakes (aka "night tigers") in my roof is astonishing and...

    Thanks, Crocy.

    Thanks, Yes, saw that one. It is a 12 inch model I believe, and they had the 1500watt motor.
