Hi all,

I need some help with the Lima Gear motor on my mill the instructions for the changing of the speeds, all I get from mine is one speed 584 RPM I have changed the belt position on the step pulley and I still get over 500 RPMs. I speed change lever is pulled out and moved to the right and this is supposed to give a speed change of 4:1. Any help or info would be greatly appreciated. A few photos so you will be able to see the type motor and pulleys.
Thanks in advance
