motor cleaning

        One thing I found that really cleans a motor nice is a Dremel
mini-mite.  I saw a local well known racer doing this so I decided to give
it a whirl and it works wonderful.  He took his mini-mite and reversed the
rotation on it.  Then you remove the brushes and springs from your motor.
 I then spray the motor out with some cleaner and blow in dry with some
compressed air to help get the ***out.  You then attach the mini-mite to
the armature and tighten it down.  Turn on the mini-mite.  Insert a comm
stick into the brush hoods and gently press it against the comm.  We have
found that the Parma one works the best.  Most dremel bits will still work
but drill-bits won't.  Another use is to attach a soft wire brush to it
and use it on the face of the brush to remove the glazing.  I don't do
this often though.  Be careful because you can mess up the seating of the
brush.  Just a neat idea I thought I'd pass along.
