notottoman You can have the motor checked with a mega-ohm meter. They operate at high voltage. If it doesn’t read close to infinity, the motor will probably not run with a drive.

ToddTurner IMO, drives are getting so cheap, they make roto-phases and converters obsolete. They are so much more versatile.
