I have the same motor and asked myself the same question about one year ago...
The swich is for 24 and 25 fps or variable speed.
My motor seems to be a bit odd since it has a 24/25 mark (on the camera side when you remove the motor) but still can only run at 25fps (variable from 6 to 32fps).
My motor doesn't have this 24 /25 switch, I hope yours has it...it should be on the camera side of the motor. Sorry I can't tell you more since I've never seen one.
Maybe you could add a picture to your next message, maybe it can help...

Question: Are the 24/25fps crystal settings done internally or do I need to set that with a combination setting between the toggle switch and rotary dial?
Like Thibaut said, it's on the camera side of the motor. You choose speed by setting the screw in one of the holes.

Any help with an alcan motor that wont turn off?
As soon as I plug in the power supply it powers on and makes a loud rattling sound, the switch wont work in the front and the only way to turn it off is by unplugging the battery?
thanks for any response
