Back on the Bench
My theory about the armature was wrong, clearly, since the motor continues to make the noise. I suppose it could be that the grease wicks are not yet greasy enough to lube the shaft of the armature. It really sounds like a bad bearing or a too tight belt. Since I cannot find a bearing or a belt anywhere on this motor, I have to start over. I pulled the motor AGAIN and found that the worm does seem a bit tight in one spot on rotation.
Until the next time, I will keep you updated.
