    Lead End is where the leads come out of the motor and is opposite shaft end CCW LE and CCW SE is different unless the leads come out on the shaft end

    Lead end and shaft end are the same on this 276 CCW motor... only reason I know is because I just put one in...

    It is listed as CCWLE and it spins CCWSE. Not sure why they wouldn't just list it as CCWSE on the box and save alot of frustration.

    The blade on the right is the one thats supposed to go in the condensing unit.
    The motor bracket and blade on the left is just for example. ...they're spare at our shop

    Ok guys...got another one taken care of.
    I got that 75 watt motor installed. I also was able to evenly bend back the LAU fan blade to make the pitch less.

    Started up...took right off, not overamping. All is well for now
    I took some pics. Kinda suck tho lol

    Just matching the wattage of the motor isnt enough you gotta match the type of motor to...some kinds of motors do not develop enough torque so they will not come up to speed.

    Tach the motor speed and compare to the nameplate. Compare that information to the motor you replaced.
