Restoring dirty Technigold motor

Recommended Posts

Hey guys any tips on trying to restore this motor that came off a poorly maintained car that had ran in the dirt, not cleaned and then stored away? Is it salvageable or just clean to be a display piece.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Hummm... looks ikky, but first thing I would do is take it apart, mask the label, and clean everything with motor spray/nitro cleaner/MAF cleaner and a tooth brush.  Then I would cut the comm and swap brushes/springs, and see if it runs.

Then solder on new leads and decide whether to run it or swap the armature or just toss it in the trash.  :lol:

GL!

New motor labels are available from MCI , as above, soak it, strip it and check the internal condition

Gave it a scrub and opened it up. Seems ok internally but I don't know what I am looking at :lol:. Forgot to take photos though.

I ran out of bearing oil so will get some to re-lube.
