If you want to find the HP of an electric motor you can calculate it if you know the amps and it's efficiency rating, which should be on the metal tag attached to the motor. hp=volts*amps*efficiency/746 If the motor efficiency is say 82% then you would use .82 in the formula.

For the high speed, (2950 ft/min), the belt should be installed on the rear pulley of both the motor and the wheel. For the low speed( 1445 ft/min), the belt should be installed on the front pulley of both the motor and wheel. To properly adjust the belt tension, turn hand wheel until there is 1/2" deflection in the "multi-vee" belt.

By the way, where do you get your band saw blades? I got mine from sawblade.com and I happy with them.
I made a research on google and I found Brico BS360 band saw . However, I am not pretty sure about this since there is no any other information came out. Photo of the band saw would really help. Just try posting this to different forum site .
Do you need the manual for repair info, parts, or just general information?
AMT has been out of business for a while. That particular bandsaw was a Taiwanese import knockoff of a Rockwell bandsaw. Depending on specs, you may be able to use an exploded diagram/parts list, etc. from the "source" machine.
Ok so you understand that Rockwell became Delta, or was it the other way round?? Either case the best source of manuals for these much loved machines is over at Old Wood Working Machines:
You should find your model.. 14" Delta doesn't really pin it down too exactly. The model number should be on the warning plate.
My old delta has the transmission on the back for cutting metal, and it is geared way down for power, 1140 would be way to fast, It is more like 40 rpm. I don't know if even a set of step pulleys would slow you down enough. Depends on the metal. I have the step pulleys too, but never bother to change them. The transmission, you just pull out the lock in the center of the pulley and it throws it into back gears. real nice, has an oil filled gear box on the bottom. Everybody wants my band saw!
I suspect the part you need is 150086 "Upper Wheel Shaft". You can confirm this by checking the exploded diagram for your bandsaw which can be downloaded at http://content.wmhtoolgroup.com/manuals/708115K_man.pdf.
See page 25 for exploded diagram showing wheel shafts, bearings, etc..
It might be worth checking with JET about warranty since I believe that band saw has a 5 year warranty. You can check here for a service center near you.
