Re: viceroy 1/2

Yeah Andy the motor is definitely single phase. The wiring from the contactor to the selector switch appears as though its never been touched, and the way it was wired only allowed the chuck to operate Anti clockwise which ever way you had the selector switch it still ran counter clockwise.
