Re: (ET) Motor out
I seem to recall it was pretty straightforward. I remember one motor I
disassembled had a neat clip thing that would hold the brushes up out of
the way so they would clear the bearing. You release it through a hole
in the case I think - it's been too long ago since I did a traction
motor. Mark the end cap alignment. Some can be rotated 180 out. McMaster
has the bearings. Don't lose the shim washers on the end of the shaft.
Don't sand the armature with oxide (??) sandpaper - some sandpaper is
conductive and can short out the armature. I disassemble and clean up
all the bolted together connections.

Ok, the motor is out and on the bench. Fortunately the 4 field wires are
held in place by one of those cable clamp things. So the clamp kept the
wire from ripping out inside the motor.
Good GE. Good good GE. Wise people at GE.
Anyway, I used a crimp on insulated barrel connector and put the clamp
back on. There's enough slack inside the motor to do this. Once again,
good GE thing. Now I'll put the motor back in (helps to have a jack) and
see what happens.
For the spring I should probably R&R the motor. Any advice or manuals on
taking it apart? How does one get the rear brush assembly out?
