Oh Ok,i thought my existing motor was the original one ?Looks like it has been in there since the 1960s !!
I still think its faulty as the slightest pressure stops it with ease and it reverses itself.
I will look at the one you mentioned but would have either mount it through its existing gearbox or directly which would mean a very slow RPM speed.

That Crouzet motor doesn't look as substantial as any I've seen even in the smallest pusher.
There's a photo on here of the typical Parvalux Click Here

Yes come to think about it it does look tiny.The guy i bought it from did say the motor was weak,maybe someone swapped it out and then realized it was no good.
I think its time for a stronger one!

I know someone who has a Davy Jones locker pusher that runs with a Crouzet motor, number 392, 50 cycles per second,240 volt,clockwise,10rpm. !PUZZLED!

I have an Easy Push, but have no idea on rpm, but would of thought 20 would be more normal, so around 3 seconds per rotation. 6 seconds sounds like a very long time and surely would have a very slow movement of the draw, unless geared differently !PUZZLED!

Would it be at all possible for some pics of the motor on the machines you both mentioned ?
RPM is stated on them.
Thanks in advance

I think its the gearbox that determines the RPM ? My motor spins faster than 20 RPM when you take it out of the gearbox so i guess the gearbox slows down the cycle.Yes 3 seconds per cycle seems about right

the 392 refers to a type 390 motor fitted to a type 2 gearbox, but the magic word here is "clockwise" it can only run in one direction... the 10 rpm version will give you 1500 grams per centimeter of torque, this should be enough to drive the machine, so the motor on the machine can not be the original one and has been swapped at some time.. :!?!:
