I get it. After you adjust the treadle travel (say that fast three times) if it still runs too fast, you also have ratio problems. What are the diameters of the pulley on the machine and the pulley on the clutch motor? If the pulley on the clutch motor is as big, or bigger, than the pulley on the machine, it would be very hard for you to control the speed. The speed of the motor should be 1725 RPM, is that what it says on the label? You can always change back to the original pulley after you get the hang of the machine.
