|BTW - the motor tag is for a 4 blade westy - Here are #s I have seen "in the wild"
4 blade - 164848 (with various suffix letters)
6 blade - 164864 (with various suffix letters)
Here are #s I have seen "in the wild"
164848 -- 4 blade Westy osc 12 in - 100-110 V
164849 111-120 V
164848G - 4 blade Westy osc 12 in
6 blade -
164864 -- 6 blade Westy osc 12 in - 100-110 V
164864G - 6 blade Westy osc 12 in
So several possibilities:
1) Motor tag was lost and a similar tag substituted in the distant past
and the motor is really correct for this blade & cage - in this case
the motor would be 2 wire & would have a centrifugal switch (Scott, does it? )
2) Motor is a later 6 pole motor ( 164864G, I, etc. OR 315745A) and the
tag was substituted.
3) Motor and base are indeed a 164848G, in which case burnout is imminent -
