Default DIY CC 48v motor repair/rebuild?

Hi All,

I was able to remove the CC motor ... I was told the brushes were bad and I want to rebuild it.

I have a 48v system. I can supply motor part # if needed. I was going to get the Bandit from PQ.... but I think I'll use the $$ to rebuild the motor and paint the cart.

Can anyone point me in the direction of how I would go about replacing the brushes and what I would need to do to rebuild the motor??

Thanks !!

You should inspect the brush holder real well if any of the brush guides are loose it will need to be replaced. This causes a clicking noise because the motor is out of time.

Ok so I have taken apart my CC 48v motor and here are some pics....

The 4 brushes look like Ruffles....and there is a lip at the bottom of 3 of them ( I assume this is bad....I will replace them.)

The core has a shine area and a dull area..( core spinning out of time? unbalanced? )

Any advise on this? What am I looking at?

Thanks!!!

I would use emery cloth on the brushes back to smooth at the same radius of commutator (i think that's what it is) that's what I did to one of my motors. Mine was full of dust as well and just performed a thorough cleaning. my problem with motor was siezure due to end bearing. I replaced it, cleaned and put it back in. If you are going to replace brushes then just seek a site sponsor.

When you're this far into the motor, I'd just replace the brushes and toss the old ones in the trash. I'd also put in a new bearing.
