Hi guys I recently picked up a delta 50-853 at a machine auction near my home. The machine was modified to with a hydraulic pump to turn the motor, for use by the Amish. I have removed the hydraulics and wired it back to run on electricity, but am now left with a big hole on the back of the motor, which is no good. I also cannot seem to find the boiler tag on the motor to identify the frame size and rpm of the motor. Do any of you have this model dust collector and/or happen to know or have access to this info? Thanks

Well, it’s a 3hp 230V single phase motor, and should be running at 3450 rpm. As for frame size – do you have the old motor to measure? If so, here is a list of the standard NEMA frame sizes w/dimensions:
