Thanks Alan

The projector shown was my spare one. Unlike the one I use all the time, this one the motors had never been cleaned.

Agreed! The video is very clear and perfectly explained. I never thought of cleaning the motors ever. Your machine sounds nice and quiet. Thank you for posting.

Superb video by Graham and hopefully this will be added into the forums technical section.
I cleaned both my GS motors just last week using Graham's previously posted written description of this process. Reason for cleaning was electrical noise from both motors, due to arcing within the motors. Both motors were really filthy inside with carbon dust everywhere. After cleaning up everything inside, the electrical noise has pretty well gone.
One thing I found though was that I could not get the brush assembly back onto the rotor shaft without first totally pulling out the rotor. Graham obviously has the nack of doing it with his toothpick technique. Anyway, I had to totally remove the motor, unbolt it from the mounting bracket, and remove the little pinion gear, in order to get the rotor out. Graham's technique, if you have the dexterity to do it, is a much simpler way of doing it.

Thanks everyone

Just one thing, if you are going to put a small drop of oil on the back of those motors afterwards, be carefull not to put to much, as if any of it makes it way onto the commutator, in time with wear from those carbon brushes the mix of oil and carbon, could act as a mild sort of cutting compound and increase the speed of wear on the commutator and the brushes running on it.

One other thing with those brushes dont use anything metal on them. I just used the stem of cotton buds to compress them against there springs when sliding the end cover back on.

best of luck [Smile]
