Re: How To Reverse Direction of Electric Motor?
That's the poles, as long as it's just the iron that's scarred, it shouldn't be a big deal. You should have matching scars on the armature. If it's gotten into the copper windings, you'll need to have it rewound. At any rate, make sure you get all the iron filings out of it. I assume you found a bearing gone bad that caused this.
Since you've had no luck finding a starter, go over on Southwest Blvd., stop at Rosedale Barbecue and get a sandwich and fries. Then head maybe 3/4 mile further west looking for an automotive electrical shop on the opposite side of the Blvd, I think their name is Hunt. If they can/t help you try Allen Armature on 18th Street just south of Central Avenue. Both have been in business as long as I can remember. Allen rebuilt the starter on my '58 MG back in 1966. Hunt did my Jeep alternator in 1987 and it was still putting out power 8 years later when I swapped in the SBC. I've heard good things about Hick's at on Kansas Avenue in Armourdale, been around since I was a kid in the 50's, but don't remember any personal experiences with them. All of these are KCK, pay your sales tax over here, we need the money.
