Rotational direction for Scaife & Sons pump?
Scaife & Sons pump
In the ten days it has been posted, I appears I have garnered no responses to my question at http://www.about-air-compressors.com/which-way-to-turn-pump1.html
The questions is this: In the absence of compressor system's original motor, how do I determine which is the correct way to rotate the pump? I can only assume that the v-belt pulley on this pump needs to turn counterclockwise, i.e., in the direction that would cause the fan-blade-like spokes of the pulley to push air past the head of the pump to help cool it during operation. Is that a reasonable assumption? Thanks.
