Pulled the NV3500 out of the truck Broke it down & replaced the rear shaft output bushing & seal. took it for a test drive this morning and I think it's still slinging fluid. Now I suspect that there's a weep hole in the yolk on the Drive shaft. I don't see how else it could be leaking. It actually looks clean around the seal But there's fluid on the underside of the truck right above the front U-joint. Syncromesh stinks when it hits the CAT & burns.

Drive shafts only a year old. I had it made. Now that I think about it that's when the leaking actually started so maybe there's a pinhole in the yolk. Have to put it back on the lift and drop the shaft and inspect. Raining now ain't happening today.

Brush cuttin all week down at sis's! got a few saw logs out of it so far. Gotta fix the truck rear end before I can haul anything with it. Hopefully its just the front seal and not the bearing too.!

wanted to do a metal roof on the house in Florida BUT it would have been almost twice as much. Too many valleys and ridges. would have taken a lot longer to do as well.

took a preliminary look at the big Doall cut off bandsaw I just got from auction, it was at Anniston,AL defense depot, had a tag on it that read "cuts thinwall tubing fine but stalls out when cutting heavy metal"..upon initial looking the power/control box it was made up for 208V but methinks the drive motor is made up for 380/480V (weird quad voltage 3ph motor)and is mismatched to incoming power..can't get to motor lead box yet,the saw is temporary stashed in a trailer,blocking access to motor lead box..I'll do a thread on it soon once I get shop space back

sounds like the wrong motor for it!
got the onions cultivated and some weeds sprayed, another 8 rows of sweetcorn in and more cabbage plants in. loaded out some stuff I sold,---more to go as I am trying to sell out as much as I can. Mostly stuff I dont use anymore to start with and work up from there!

looked into the bandsaw motor for a little while late today, it's an "IEC global standard" motor, its both 50 and 60hz rated compact frame D90L,2HP 3phase..not totally hard to find a replacement in case this one is toast, but I think its just wired wrong voltage or made up wrong. A single phase version is available but I have to see if the current motor is any good or just wired wrong..it would be a cheap and easy VFD speed control conversion to make..more later

Ya, That 3 phase crap is a joke for regular guys! Got that problem with the motor on my 10 foot SB lathe, --- ancient 2 hp 3 phase and I mean ancient! And to top it off its a chain drive from motor to first reduction shaft, flat belt from there to spindle shaft. The chain looks like the timing chain out of a car motor. guess I need to take the motor off and try making something else fit on it. Got a new 2 hp modern single phase motor from an auction that I kinda wanted to try on it, never gonna do heavy high speed production with it, so just something to make the chuck go round and round will suffice.
The 220-v part is great, the 3-phase part is not!
The switch on this thing is kinda weird too. it looks like a soda can with a lever on top. dont know if that would vary the speed or just on - off.

Went to auction today! Might have been a mistake. Looks like I now own another F-350 truck. Service bed on this one, Not exactly what I wanted but as long as it runs/drives I can live with the rest.

Well I decided to run both of the 350's and give up on the 150 for now. this 350 is a year OLDER than the diesel and has only 80,000 miles on it, so a year older and half the miles, PLUS gas motor!-- STILL stuck with automatic trans! --- The new one has a 5.8? --- anyway I cant keep track of these new numbers. looks to be maybe something about the size of the 351 which I had in a 150 4x4 at one time and that was a good motor.

Sounds like a drum switch. Usually set up for some variation of FWD-OFF-REVERSE. Can usually be set up for single phase or 3 phase.

Sonny I'd argue that your '3phase is crap for regular guys"..u have it or you don't; if you don't,you can find a way to run the motor with a converter,or just replace it with a single phase motor,sometimes its cheaper to run the 3phase motor as prices for motors are thru the roof!.the saw I am working on has a control box with a machine tool transformer to supply 120V for the motor starter coil, worklight and controls due to the machine being made for a global market..it has 50 or 60hz capability,so the motor is a IEC design, not a NEMA motor. From what I can tell the control box was made up for 208V and the motor is still made up 480V,best I can tell right now..so a wiring mismatch is present..never know what you will uncover with an gov't auction machine..it might have been used in a 480V facility then excessed and transferred to someone with 208V who started to work on it but got stopped and transferred again to a warehouse for years, no documents,etc..I got DoAll to send me the electrical prints..ya gotta start from the "basement" and confirm wiring from the plug thru to the motor making sure everything is done correctly..and work upwards thru the control system..it looks complete but you never know maybe something critical was pulled off and used elsewhere to fix another saw..Ill start a thread with pics when I can get back to it

ripped the 35 year old carpet out of the Motor home and laid vinyl plank. Still need to trim it out but I think it'll be a hell of a lot easier to keep clean.
