Motor Purchased

I bought a 2nd hand motor from M&E Equipment. They were very helpful. ($440)

I have replaced the bearings as a preventive maintenance measure. On and old motor with a rusty shaft, this is easier said than done. Lesson Learned: Clean the rust off the shafts with wet and dry sandpaper before trying to remove any of the components! Parts are not available for the old ASEA motors so be careful. The new bearings are sealed units so no no lubrication is required, at least for now.
