Topic tags/keywords: repulsion start motor timing question

I am restoring a 1949 Delta Rockwell cabinet saw and have taken the Milwaukee Electric Bullet Motor apart,
turned the commutator on Delta lathe using the cross slide rest that Delta made as an accessory for these
lathes in the 1950’s, and installed new bearings. Vintage Machinery states that after a dozen or more very
minor adjustments, their motor’s new best alignment was located and identified. They do not say what
they adjusted or how, or how they determined this alignment. Can anyone here help me? As a young
hot rodder, I learned to power time engines after we adapted then to other than their original purpose and
eliminated the timing marks in the process, so I am not entirely a mechanical idiot, but I do not want to
ruin this motor. Thank you for any help you can give me. I have also posted this request on Practical
Machinist site.
