I think the fact that it is functional probably lowers the budget below having it rewound professionally or replacing the motor with a new one. Just for knowledge sake anyway, I'm interested in what...

Or if the winding is swapped while running? Will damage occur in either case?

You can certainly reverse the polarity of one of the coils, it just doesn't do anything as far as I can see. I have seen guys start these things in reverse with no circuit alteration, using a drill...

Hi Guys,

Pretty well managed to get it all in the title! I have a 700cc 22hp V-twin Honda copy that I'm mounting on a home built sawmill project. As you can see from the first image, my saw beam...

Beat you all to it sorry about the useless post.

It has some kind of diverter valve after the pump, I guess for sending water upstairs and downstairs. The motor that turns it was blown and I think...

Yeah I got there in the end. After pressing the two sides apart and realising the race was part of the hub. Makes them awfully expensive.

The wheel bearing is definitely suspect, quite a growl with just slow rotation.

I expected to see a seal against the back of the bearing, is what I'm looking at here missing a part or correct?

Way to narrow it down PJ 😝 haha.

Rumble in drivetrain

Anyone want to hazard a guess as to what's making this noise before I go tearing things apart?

No the seal doesn't touch the tapered bearing. The bearing and races are the type shown in pilots photos.

That seal pilot shows was on the right wheel, would have been great if that was in the kit as that makes sense!
