I’m working on refurbishing an old Pools 4" special lathe; the motor is a Brooks Crompton (I could just about make out the tag), but I have no idea what the specs are because the sticker is faded… It is inscribed with the number MH097849.
I need a start capacitor but have no idea what uf rating to use…any suggestions?
The motor is a single-phase 240v single phase motor.
The motor hums when the power is turned on, but I had to rotate the pulley on the lathe to get it going. I suppose I need a combination start/run capacitor because there is only room for one (I have the cap cover and two spade end wires are coming out of the motor).
