I recently bought a Sailrite LSZ1 and I absolutely love it. I also have a Tony H305-4 which is similar to your Sailrite Professional. I use it for really heavy duty work as the foot can lift higher. Sewing forward is fine, but it tends to break the needle when sewing in reverse. In order to reverse sew I have to turn the balance wheel by hand and jiggle the reverse leaver at the same time until the needle goes down without striking the needle plate. I think it might be the feed-dogs pushing the material while the needle is still going down. Any idea how I can fix this?

Glad you love your LSZ-1. For the Tony machine we do have a guidebook of our Professional here:

http://www.sailrite.com/PDF/2017-Professional-Guidebook-lo-res.pdf

But the differences will be the timing setup of the machine. We spend a large amount of the setup time on the Professional getting the cams and gears set properly and then setting the timing. The above guidebook with help you with the timing and some of the other basic settings. Hopefully this will be enough to fix the issues for you.

I want to order the Workhorse Servo Motor for My Tony H305-4, but I have a question. I see the motor comes with a pulley for a cogged belt, but the existing balance wheel on the machine takes a v-belt. Will this present a problem and do I have to change the balance wheel?

You get both the cogged pulley and a V-groove pulley with the motor. So you can use the existing balance wheel without any issues.
