I've got an old 3-phase Oliver lathe with belt problem. The motor pulley seems to have moved out to the point it rubs against the cover plate. Picture attached. The motor itself runs well, is mounted securely and spins freely. Does anyone know how to correct this issue? If it requires moving the pulley shaft please also explain how to do that. I've pulled the spring to try and find a way to possibly push the pulley back in with no success.
There are two model numbers attached to the lathe, so I'm not sure which model it is. I've posted a picture of the plates, so someone more experienced than me with these lathes might be able to identify the model.
atxmm, I think you've posted to the wrong bulletin board. The readers of this board are mostly involved with the 1013 and 1015 CNC carvers. Posting under "traditional machinery" might get you an answer, or I always recommend calling Oliver directly (remember they are on Pacific time).
The best solution would be to call Eagle Machinery and Repair, their number is listed under the topic "Old Oliver Machines pre 1990" further down the board. I believe they are the resource for repair and parts info on old Oliver Machines that were once made in Michigan.
