What sort of starter do I need for a 3 wire control, 3ph pillar drill?

Hi All,

I have a Fobco 7/8, 3ph pillar drill and the ancient MEM 331VCO starter that came with it has died.

I have a new starter but I can't see how to wire it for 3 wire control.

My starter has L1, L2, L3 (3ph in), T1, T2, T3 (3ph out) and 13, 14 (NO) for two wire control (?) and the two connections for the coil (A1, A2).

Currently I am able to switch it on at the drill but off only at the wall. Not ideal.

Is there some special kind of starter that works with 3 wire controls? Or am I just doing it wrong with the one I have?

Cheers,

Wilson.
