I bought my DC used from a guy and it was assembled. He had the mounting plate assembled with the rabbet facing the motor. According to the instructions you have it on the side away from the motor. Will I have a problem here?

The T-Nuts would be facing the wrong direction and therefore will pull out of the plate causing the unit to come apart, it needs to be flipped over.

I understand what you are saying, but,the t-nuts on this one are on the opposite side of the motor and are counter sunk. Could this have been made wrong or possibly an older design as this unit is 6 years old. The only difference that I can see in this mounting will be that the motor and impeller will be approx. an 1/8th of an inch higher in the blower housing.

I recall a post and maybe the early instructions about the t-nuts being on the wrong side of the mounting plate. I'm quite sure the early instruction set showed the plate upside down. I've done a search but cannot now find that post. I think it was by Ed.

bababrown Thanks for the reply. I did some searches and found a reply from Matt in a 2009 post Product Instructions Updates. In it he hinted that they changed the t-nuts to the rabbeted side some time in the past. I must have one of those, Thanks for your time

Since I am currently installing my CV1800, I have noticed one minor item so far:
1) page 15; #1: The bolts that came on my system are 7/16" and not 5/8" as stated.
I will post others if I encounter them.

Some of these are, perhaps, overly pedantic, especially with the photographs, but it only takes a moment to be precise and eliminate potential problems:
All images should be uniquely numbered and labeled.
The PDF has numerous errors of a technical nature. For example, black text and black objects knock out, fonts are not embedded (could cause problems on some non-Windows systems), resolutions of the images is large less than 96 ppi, making it blurry when printed and not particularly clear even when viewed on screen. Also, when I try to print the document I get errors on Page 25 which keeps pages 25 & 26 from printing out.
I’d take a few minutes and fix the background noise in the logo, as well as sharpen the edges and increase the resolution. It’s your logo, your brand identification; you should want it to be as perfect as possible.
It wouldn’t hurt to be more specific. If you don’t think it matters what screw types and dimensions, you should explicitly state that.
Change to read: 1 – 8’ long two-by-four lumber
What kind of bolts? Dimensions?
What kind of screws? Wood screws, drywall, MDF, etc? What dimensions?
Illustration is insufficient resolution. Color and gray scale images should be 300dpi, line drawings should be at least 600dpi. This image is very blurry when printed, and people’s eyesight degenerates with age.
Cyclone Hardware illustration is insufficient resolution. See notes for page 5. I can’t even read the printout of this illustration. It would appear to me, however, that the motor bolts are mislabeled. The pan head should read pan head screws.
I know what a motor key is. Perhaps all of your customers also know this. In case they don’t, you may wish to be a bit more specific.
There are no directions to transform the bracket sides to triangles.
Item #2 uses two 2 ½” screws. This is not on the list on page 3.
Item #3 should specify that ten 1 ½” screws are to be used for each bracket side. Technically, the way it reads now, it only specifies ten screws total.
Item #4 ends with an extraneous left parenthesis.
Item # 4c notes that the entire weight of the system is being held by the screws, but, as noted in the comments on Page 3, you don’t specify the type of screw. My feeling (and you may certainly disagree) is that the average person will buy drywall screws, whereas wood screws for decking, for example, may be more appropriate.
Item #4d says to use the #12 x 2 ¼ screws, but doesn’t specify quantity.
The first image labeled “(4)” is of insufficient resolution to see how many screws are used to apply the sides to the bracket back.
The second image labeled “(4)” shows nine screws for that side.
Item #5b refers to four motor bolts.
Illustrations are all labeled for Item #4, but they apply to Item #5.
Item #1f “As you tighten, the impeller is drawn up towards the bolts.” I believe this belongs in the next step, as tightening a setscrew against the key should not draw up the impeller.
Question: how does one measure ft/lbs on screws tightened by Allen/Hex wrenches?
Items #3a and #3b refer to things that need to be done later, but are not referenced later in the document.
