i checked out the drainage all is clear but this is what have found on the motor. The motor armature moves in the motor maybe 10mm its as if the bearings have moved and allowed lots of end float play too the point where the brushes are almost leaving the armature segments. I am trying too get another motor.

That was a bit of a pain to get lined up but I hope someone may find it useful.

It would be nice if you would at least acknowledge when you have ripped off someone else's work. That is a complete copy taken without my permission from a post I made in a closed forum. Even down to the bit about lining it up at the bottom. That is my intellectual property not yours.
Oh dear.....your closed forum appears to have sprung a leak :cry:
As for your so-called "intellectual property" claim.....well we all know that is just a tarted up version of copyright manufacturer material. So don't go blowing your Einstein trumpet on the back of someone else's work. You may be a UKW moderator on your side of the fence but you are not one here....your offensive & bloated allegations are not welcome. Furthermore; these are your words on the subject posted on your own website 8th of July 2010 at 8:55am......
(quote) "It was worded that way by me so as not to be a direct copy of the manufacturers copyright manuals"....Sound familiar??? :oops:
