I need to clarify that my earlier electricty recommendations are for the stock 1 1/2 hp motor. Since someone painted yours orange I’m not sure if it is the stock motor. If it was my saw I’d paint the motor the original color which was gray like the saw, but if you don’t want to go through the time and extra expense to try to match the paint, you could paint it black like the newer saws were. I’ll also add that the motor belt guard and guard mount are still available, I can’t remember where, but I just bought a belt guard last summer for a saw that I refurbished and sold. Left tilt, right tilt, in my opinion is just another marketing ploy by the manufacturers to get people to buy new imported saws. The left verses right tilt isn’t that big of a deal. If you have a right tilt saw, move your fence to the left of the blade and you basically have the same results. The splitter/guard and mounting hardware that came with the Delta Contractor’s saw that I bought new in 1995 is still in the factory packaging and has never been mounted to the saw.
