  • National motor disasemble

    I trying to disasemble a National motor to clean out the insides real good. It still work nice but there is so much crap in the bottom of the motor the air doesn't flow through.

    The question is the nut on top of the shaft holding the plate, what tool works best on removing these. I have tried a spanner wrench to little success. Grainger # 1APC1 for the tool. Also good place for replacement nuts would be nice. Thanx

    Re: National motor disasemble

    For cleaning out dust and brush grit, I've had very good luck with ECG Electronics Wash (P/N: RX3200) and a couple puffs of compressed air.

    Is this a backend motor or a combo? Most nuts like that I start with a sharp punch and a couple light taps with a hammer to get it broken free, then it just spins off. You might need a puller to get the plate loose. I don't think we've ever lost the nut, so we never had to replace one.
