LMAO, perfect. A good warm up for a game of hockey. It's still entertainment. It's the coolest game on earth. My boy got to play at the Joe Louis arena. We went to the Wings/Hurricane's game Sat night.

Default Re: 13 inch Series... a few questions....

So, I'm getting ready to wedge this beast into my truck and right now it is in my basement. There is no way I can get get this thing up the stairs other than the way I got it down . . . which is in pieces. I probably could make a lifting frame and get 3 other guys to help me . . but, I've been thinking about shimming the pole shoes. If I'm going to take it apart again, I think I will get the armature checked for balance as well.

I think it will be a lot easier to place the motor, move it around so I can design and fabricate motor mounts with a couple hundred pounds removed from it. I can have the yoke, end bells only, and still mount the Lenco/gear Vendors on the back.

I'm looking for feedback on armature air gap to pole shoes. I've been doing some research and there is some info out there on the issue but nothing I can find about actually reducing the gap and by how much etc. I'm aware of the ability to increase torque production and improve efficiency. . . but I'm wondering also about negatives. Will a reduced gap have a negative impact on max rpm/volt???

Dennis Berube told me he goes as close as 0.011" . . in some cases. . . after his "machine shop work. I'm probably not going to get any secrets out of him. .
Right now, mine looks like about 3/16". I'm sure there is plenty of room to move them in . . but I don't know how far at this point.

Next point is with what. I want to use something like shim stock and drill/punch holes for the screws. This way the spacers will be captive and contact entire footprint of shoes for electrical connection to yoke. Make sense??

I swear I read this identical post like a year ago. Suggestions included a pallet with lots of friends, pallet with skis and a pulley-winch system, and asking Leroy Jethro Gibbs for assistance.

That is how I brought the tractor up from my basement, built it up and then took it all apart again to bring up.

Both my 12" and 11" motors were carried down to the workshop in bits and then reassembled.
Much of what I have down there got there the same way, including machinery.

That motor/trans assembly is looking good!

The point of the post, and the question is not about getting it up the stairs. It's about shimming the pole shoes and armature air gap.

Hey Woody. Being a woodworker... I enjoy reading about your tractor. I think u get as much of a kick out of doing the woodwork as you do making the mechanical stuff. lol

Growing up on a farm, I learned young about figuring out ways to get stuff done with what you have . . and usually that means by yourself.... lol
