Byers mount help
      #3896270 - 07/01/10 12:06 AM

In my wisdom I removed the micro switches on my Byers 812 without making a diagram. One of the two switches had broken some years back. I am having a horrible time trying to figure out the wiring. The only thing I have for sure is the switch with the two contacts (no nc) wired together (red wire).

Any illustration of the micro switch wiring would be a great help.

I have the motor turning but both switches right now need to be up. Also the neon light doesn't dim the way it should when the motor is running and hasn't reached the micro limit switch.

Thanks again.

Here is what I *think* the original wiring of the Byers 812 may look like. When I received mine, it had a lot of hotrodding to incorporate DSC. I pulled it all out and returned it to what I *think* is original.
