Hi Solarguy;This is as i say 3ph and that is fine but being that its only 5hp i was hoping to rewire it for the lower voltage(208-230) and use a ac controller(curtis/kelly/etc) not a vfd because i didn't think i could get one small and cheap enough.I wanted to use it in a lightweight car conversion.I also thought that if i could lower the voltage to say 115/120 this may even make it all the more usable seeing that its such a small motor,it might not work but im trying to find that out because i can get this motor for $50.Thanks,i know i might be grasping at straws id just like to get started!
