John, I retired 10 years after you, and that was more that 10 years ago, so I'm becoming rusty also.
Those mechanical starters were mostly just a starter and thermal overload. Some may have had a disconnect on them. Maybe some had a lock out on the start button.
On those motors with the large box on them.
They sure were nice to hook up because had so much room to put the wires.
All that I worked on were totally enclosed air over. And that large box had a nice gasket on the cover. And some were aluminum frame.
I soon learned to NEVER install them where that box would be on top. Especially if they were to be used in cold weather. When the motor is running the motor warms up, then when turned off they cool off and draw cold damp air in, then moisture turns to water and runs into the motor, which soon ruins the motor.
So it's best to set the motor so the box is on the side of the motor, and drill a hole or 2 so that condensate can drain out.
John, I don't know if I'll make the Fly Wheelers. Let you know latter.
