I recently acquired the Delta 28-206 BS and am having problems with the
set-up/alignment of the motor and saw pulleys. In order to get them properly
aligned, I have to move the motor all the way back on the mounting bracket
which compresses the motor and cord against the enclosed base. In other
words, I can't close the door to the base let alone lift the motor to attach
The instruction manual shows the pulleys on both motor and saw to be
configured with the larger pulley facing out. That is, the set screw is
closest to the end of the arbors. On my saw, the pulleys are reversed - the
set screws are closest to the motor/saw.
Which is the correct configuration for the pulleys? My gut tells me mine are
on in reverse and should match the picture in the instruction manual.
I tried to reverse the upper pulley but gave up in frustration as it appears
there is no way to pull it off the arbor without a gear puller.
Any comments/ideas would be greatly appreciated.
