Sorry for the long time with no reply, but my computer decided to drop dead for the last 5 days.

Thanks for the info.

These motors i have are not fan motors, but they are like fan motors. I don't care that much if they get burnt up because the price was right. Free.

Larryback could you explain that a bit more. What i have found with one motor is it i disconnect the start winding lead ( I believe that is what it is) and give it a spin it will spin in that direction clockwise or counter clockwise, but i can only make it start the one way.

The pictures are on the way, but i got to get my software loaded up. So it could be a day or two.

Home brew building winches like these must be a Saskatchewan thing. Only question is did you use the gearbox off a Massey combine that lifts the header? I'm sure I have seen more made out of that than anything else.

Thanks again

John
