The exploded view diagrams on the site link below will show position orientation of stator assembly. The coil bar is bolted into position. There should be a line to indicate optimum position for this on coil plate and where the bolts enter crankcase, generally providing 6 degrees of rotation. The stator or generator windings bolt on as indicated.

Vibration throughout car...change engine mounts, changed centre bearing, gearbox mount, changed both front and rear couplers still have bad vibrations

check for the drive joint phasing and angle setting of the center bearing
mostly with center bearing , the drive shaft has to be split and the flange removed for the bearing replacement
the flange can be put back on in any position and that will throw out the s joint phasing
Take it to a drive line specialist shop and ash them to check the phasing and angles to eliminate the vibration
The vibration could have been from a bad joint and the new joint was not properly installed which will also vibrate
If you are not familiar with the term phasing It is when the joints are in direct line with each other when placed on a flat surface and allows the differentiating speeds of the crosses as they pass through the 90 degrees to cancel each other out and stop the vibration
the drive line specialist will know and explain it better as he will have the drive shaft to show you on

I just had my electric motor rewound. At first I had 3 wires coming out of it now I have 9 that are number coded. I need to know which wires I need to hook up. The man at the motor shop said don't use

Apparently you have a three phase dual voltage motor. The wiring should be on the nameplate or in the junction box. You will need to know what voltage you have. There are standard wiring diagrams for three phase motors. If he rewound the motor he should have given you a diagram or there should already be one there. If he doesn't help ask for your money back.

I forgot how the connection of speaker to speaker was done. is it + + and - - or + -?

Actually here is some theory on the subject. Let's use a stereo system with only two front speakers. One left and one right. On the back of the Amplifier ( free standing "Preamps" don't have speaker connections) there are speaker outputs. Black represents minus (-) and Red represents plus (+). On the back of the speaker systems. The same thing applies. If your connections are consistent i.e. black to black and red to red. Then the speaker components will be physically moving in and out and the exact same instant. Their motions will be synchronized. The term for this is (IN PHASE)

If one of the speakers has the cables reversed, then the speaker will not sound as good. The reason being is that one speaker will be moving in while the other speaker will be moving out. They will not be in synchronization. This will create an (OUT OF PHASE) condition. This causes what is called
PHASE CANCELLATION. What occurs in phase cancellation is that some of the sound is canceled out and the low notes are almost completely canceled out. There will be almost no bass at all. When this happens people turn up the bass full and nothing happens.The speakers individually working much harder. In the case of phase cancellation, if you have the bass turned up and disconnect one of the two speakers, the bass notes get much louder.
Higher frequencies also are adversely affected they will become more mushy sounding.
I hope this helps you.

Says Lr


Lr means locked rotor. This issue occurs due to locked rotors, you'll need to check the rotor wiring and windings. If the wiring is good and windings are not burnt then you'll need to replace your motor and motor control board. These are sold as one unit, it is a 3 phase motor and one of the phases is bad. A little power surge can damage the boards.
Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

Squealing at random when volume is at approx 50%

Take your hearing aid to your specialist. Check on wax in your ears. Also are you near a window when the feedback occurs? Due to the phase-cancellation in hearing aids sometimes the signal bounces back and thinks it's feedback.So the hearing aid sends out it's own frequency at 180 degrees and hits it to cancel it out. If this is a false reading however the hearing aid will create its own feedback

I was sawing an d motor got to smelling and smoking now it won't run

I hate to be the one to tell you But you have lost your smoke!

Once you lose your smoke the motor is toast.

I have always blown out the motors on our shop tools as a matter of weekly maintenance, sure seems to make a difference in how long they last.

Try for a replacement

Table saw moter burnt out.

Sears carries a good selection of capacitor-start replacement motors that should fit your saw. Most of these motors can easily be converted to 230 volt operation which is a recommended procedure (almost instant starting!). Don't try to have the original motor rewound as it would cost several times the replacement cost. That service is only used for very expensive high-horsepower 3-phase motors as a rule. Hope this helps!

Dryer won't shut off at end of cycle

First of all if you want heat it's probably a burnt up thermal fuse due to lack of air to the dryer. But if the timer is getting stuck you'll just have to replace the timer. Theres no way of fixing the timer just replace it and then replace the thermal fuse (it's located on the back of the dryer) and you should be up and running also have the ducting cleaned out.

Please remember to unplug the dryer before working on it.

Hope this helps
