I have working on tuning up my old saw. Is the motor suppose to be mounted on a angle? This is the best I can get it so far.-no laughing.
I can run it now strait and at a 45 angle without blowing a fuse or throwing the belt. When I tilt or raise the blade it puts more tension on the belt. I had to mount the motor tilted half way to compensate.

Any of you guys have a old saw with a design like this?

This is the best way so far. I can mount the motor strait but when you tilt the saw to 45 degree its to much of a angle and the belt is to tight. Never saw the original motor and maybe I'm missing something.

OK afx. I will take the motor off and get a picture of the mounting. I can find the model # also. I have a manual but it doesn't tell much. I was given the saw years ago without a motor. I always used my grandpas saw and this was in storage.

Did more adjusting and it seems if you leave the motor mounted loose its able to slide in the slots and center it self pretty well. I ran it at 90 deg. and 45 deg and it seemed to start stop and raise the blade good. I think the slop in the mounting is what it needed,when you bolt that motor tight it binds it all up.

Let me know what you were thinking afx but I think its good now.
