I now work part time at my day job. I have every Friday afternoon off. Which means that I usually get home by two o'clock, if I am lucky. Today I was lucky. I was out in the shop by 2:30 and at 3:00 I started in on the 15-91's motor. I decided that I would just jump in and get it done. After an hour I had removed the brushes, grease wicks, worm and armature; cleaned the commutator and cleaned all the grease out of the body of the motor and grease tubes. It took another thirty minutes to prep the motor leads for re-wiring and solder new ones on. I did not tie an underwriter's knot. I did not cut the old leads back far enough to allow for room to tie the knot. I did, however, replace the grommet and crimp and solder new "U" connectors. The whole thing took about two hours.
I usually use round connectors or make rings myself at the end of the motor leads. Today I used the "U" connectors because I have about one hundred of them. When I tried them out on Mr. TPT (three pin terminal) they didn't fit so well. So I crimped them. I thought that was a clever idea, if I do say so myself. I like how the leads look with the heat shrink color coordinated.
