in my younger years I ruined some stepper motors by taking them apart. Will the permanent magnets in a motenergy PMAC loose any flux (?) like a stepper. Id like to peak inside and make any inprovements as I see fit.
for example replacing standard socket head screws with ones with corrosion plating like zinc or chrome. double checking epoxy points on windings, copper work hardens and id like to mitigate any movement to prevent. breakage down the road. one of the rubber seals has a proper lip on all but 1 side so that may get some schmoo to seal it up better. also there's lots of sharp milled edges I'd like to knock down for ease of handling.

this forum hasn't been of much help for much of anything. I figured someone would have known yes or no simply. it's a pretty straight forward question, are PMAC motors held in flux or is it okay to disassemble them

yeah I must have mistaken the DIY part of this forum for paying a specialist.

the motor in question is a motenergy formally Mars, not high quality but not junk either. like I stated, there IS good reason to disassemble for just the poorly designed seal by itself. motor companies cheap out and may not properly affix the windings and with continuous vibration(motorcycle) they will fail. this is common on cheaper motors especially power tools (not the same kind of motor no, but still has windings and vibrates) if a quick dab of better epoxy will mitigate that then thats what I'm going to do, I'm going to do it myself...DIY....
