    Coleman Fan Mod/RCB

    Found a new way to accommodate those pesky after market motor shafts. Only works if it's shaft up orientation though. Neat placement of run capacitor as well.

    Oh god, that brings back some memories. I'll be lying if I said I've never done that before, but that was when I was but a mere boot in the early days of my career.
    Not as lean, not as mean, but I'm still a hardcore, ass-kicking, hard charging Marine! Oohrah!

    Those leaves may be the only thing holding the bottom of the unit down.

    You're missing the hack's genius here. That's not a motor shaft, it's a PTO for add-on accessories, such as a mister pump to spray water onto the unit while it's running, or a rotating owl to scare away birds and rodents.
