Well I made it through the winter and never got stuck but just got a flat on the 4th and after a plug job I am not risking it any more I am down to 3/32nds and need to get some new tires sooner rather than later. Any mileage updates or performance in snow/offroad updates from anyone that's runs some miles up on some tires?
Oh I thought the armature was toast. Yeah I'd maybe sink $25 bucks at it.
This isn't your t motor but I think they are all pretty much the same down there.
I realize after looking again I thought that was the back end of the armature. I think that is a bearing. Deep creep and some tapping.
That actually looks like one of the seals to me. It doesn't make sense to have a bearing there. It should slide right off if I remember right. It's been a while.
There are exploded parts diagrams all over the internet.
I tend to agree that if it's all rusted up inside there you might be wasting your time.
