  • Can pony stay belted?

    Can I leave the pony belted to the idler when it is running on a redneck rpc? The pony is capacitor start, if it makes any difference.

    Ya' know, if I had a pony that wouldn't obey, I'd take a hammer to it.

      notillr,

      Yes it can remain belted. Another method for connecting the "pony" to the RPC is by using a Lovejoy coupling instead of belts. This way the two motors can be connected end to end and thus will eliminate the side pressure on both motor's bearings caused by the tight belt.

          Nothing very interesting about it, compared to yours. Instead of having capacitors to start it, it is spun up to speed by a single phase motor. Your's is interesting, mine is redneck notech.
