help with a C & P 10 x 15 Belt and Motor
- Hi All,
I hope there is someone out there that's able to help with this one. I
just aquired a C&P Old Style 10 x 15. It has a variable speed motor on
there, but it wasn't attached tightly when we moved it. I'm having
trouble with 2 things.
One, the belt keeps slipping off. We placed/moved the motor as far
back as it can go and bolted it tight, but it still keeps slipping
off. Is there any adjustments anywhere else that we can make to get
this tight? Also, the wheel on the motor is quite slick. Is there
anything I can put on it to help with the grip?
Two, the variable speed motor has a crank on it to go up and down in
speed. It says on there to "only adjust when running" and when we do
that, it only goes from one to four (out of 10 speed). It gets too
tight to turn. Does anyone know of any secrets or tricks to adjusting
Thanks for any help!!! She's all oiled up and ready to roll, just got
to figure these things out!
