istruggle2gate11 Posted January 26, 2006 Share Posted January 26, 2006 Hi all, Took the starter motor off yesterday for a clean and lube up, whilst I was doing this, I thought I would just post a little modification that I do, perhaps people have many more that could help? 1) Starter Motor Solenoid - I place a coupling nut (a nut approx 30mm long) onto the M8 solenoid connection, this then allows you to place a short bolt as the clamp for the main power wire. The advantages are (a) It saves stripping the copper thread when struggling with hands folded 180° as the coupling nut uses more thread than just the nut ( It saves cracking the solenoid housing from stressing the stud © it seems easier to me! 2) When working on my series motors, I drill and tap the drum brake with 3 x m8 holes which allows me to push (jack) off the drum in the future (I know it has a hole already, but its a course UNC thread, and its usually much easier to find a few M8's lying around). The advantage is it saves a lot of noise and hammering later! Anybody have any more? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
