    More disassembly, the motor came to bits really easy.



    This one looks in good nick

    I hope I don't have to replace this big boy

    Just noticed these under the paint


    Never come across a red earth tag

    I started cleaning up the ways on the bobbin, you can still see the hand scraping.

    I got the motor rebuilt and thought I would test it before I did any cosmetic work. This motor is not a happy bunny, very loud hum and a juddering spindle. I've got a friendly motor winders local who did the rewind on the JY I did. This motor is 4hp and pretty big I cant imagine what a rewind would cost. He has mentioned before that I could use his motor ovens and he's done small jobs for me for peanuts. Heres hoping its something simple but I very much doubt, I've seen a motor act like that before.

    It seems you might get a reasonable deal locally then. With cheap Chinese imports, I'm wondering if friendly local motor winders might become as rare as local sawdoctors.

    My motor guy has just one employee and is tucked away up a side street. I think he gets a kick out of seeing this stuff getting saved. I once took a motor that I wanted rewinding to 240v which was going to cost 400 instead he altered the windings which cost 20

    I got a call from my motor guy and he said he had tried the motor in his oven and it hadn't improved the mega test. I was waiting for the huge rewind cost and was surprised at 220. I think that's a cracking price considering its 4hp and physically huge.
    I ordered some Phosphoric acid and citric acid to try out. Both cost half the price of the magic solution from workshop heavin.

    I tried the phosphoric and I am quite impressed.

    The hand wheels look rough but after 30 mins
