My hands are covered in black soot, grease and who knows what. I spent a few hours last night taking off the motor and opening it up. Unfortunately my hands were too gross to hold the camera and get some pictures of the inside of this motor.
It took a little muscle to open this up, it was really black in there too. After a modest clean up I re-wired it back onto the machine and gave it go. The motor runs but I can tell it is far from being perfect.
I’m going to keep working on it. Not sure if a solution exists but I’m still plugging away!
