  • Leslie out of a Lowrey Organ 10L-2S

    picked this up. Now this unit is from an organ so it's sits with the wheel spinning like a tire (vertically). I want to put it like a record on a record player (horizontally).

    I took the slow motor off. I was told to just switch the spring from one side to the other. This spring is pretty long. Tried it anyway didn't work. What can I do.

    Also so want to build a cabinet around it when I get the work around to my two stage motor situation.

    Not clear from your description what you are trying to achieve.

    If you want the rotor to sit horizontally, why would you need to do anything to the slow motor?

    The main reason they hung this vertically was to save space in the organ. It will operate the same way no matter how it sits.

      Of course the spring arrangement of the slow motor is different for the three different ways they were mounted. Vertical up, vertical down, horizontal. By changing the spring arrangement the motor can be mounted differently than it was initially designed. However, there is no set way to do it. You have to understand the way these motors work and modify it for a different mounting. The horizontal version has a weaker spring since it's not dealing with gravity. In the other two versions it has to overcome gravity to some degree. There are spring replacement kits that would likely help.

        Yes that's understood, the different springs.

        In fact the springs that I had tested at a spring maker are of different gauges for upper rotor slow and lower rotor slow.

        Someone makes a spring for the vertical app.

        He has to decide where the slow motor is going to sit, on top like in the photo above or hang down with the slow on the bottom to know what spring to get.
