Default Galloway saw rig

To Make one of my 6hp Galloways, run backwards!---am I correct in turning the cam 180--?? I still have not figured out the saw frame cart --odd holes yet--I suppose I will just make it fit! thanks d,j,

Yes, 180 degrees on the camgear should do the trick.

I believe Galloway made two different styles/years/model of sawrig. One without a blade guard, like mine (5 hp ~1910) and a later one like John Cullom's with a blade guard. As earlier posted the size of the blade should determine the hp used on that particular sawrig.

Hope this helps some!

out of curiosity, is the saw belt driven or gear driven? If belt, why not just keep life simple and put a twist in the belt. I find it hard to beleive that you would have to make the engine run backwards to use the saw rig. Not to mention that the hand crank would no longer work...

Twisting the belt will be the easy way to made it work. The cam gear and the governor weight are made deffrent for it to run back wards.

I don't know if all Galloways were designed to run both ways, but my 5hp and 2 1/4 will. This is addressed in the operators manual. Cam is linear.

Take Care, RickinMt.

Yup.... Last one I messed with I just set to run the way the arrow was painted on the flywheel. Really there not that hard to time if you just use common sense. Most larger Galloways that I have seen have a Bidirectional cam lobe...
