    change motor to 2speed

    I have a single speed motor - Specs:

    AO Smith Centurion 1.5hp
    Threaded Shaft
    Square Flange 56Y
    SF 1.5
    fr y56y
    hp 1.5
    volts 230

    I want to change it to 2 speed. Would the Emerson SQH15FL2 be a direct fit?
    1.5hp
    230V
    1.50hp
    56Y frame

    Pricing seems to be $200, which is great!

    Understood I would also have to replace my old Instamatic timer with a 2-spd timer

    Am I missing anything? Suggestions? This should be plug-n-play, correct?
    Understood I'll need a new pump seal - already on hand.

    I cant help with the fit of your pump but I did see a spot on the local news that our power utility is offering big rebates if you switch to a 2 speed pool pump. Maybe you can find the same type of thing in your area. Good luck .

    What kind of AZ rebates are we talking about? I did a quick search and found this:

    http://www.aps.com/main/green/choice/choice_109.html

    $200 rebate for variable
    $100 rebate for 2-speed

    That match what you saw?

    ETA: I now see that APS is a utility company ... not in Tucson. Oh well, have to check out locally.

    Wahl then, the AZ discounts won't do much good for me here in TX
    Looking for advice on if it'll fit!
    Thanks
