    I got sand in my motors, a now have removed the black spring thing around the axis of the motor.
    I`m supposed to drag this two circles from each other, and split the motor in two? I

    There is another thread on here where a user posts a video of splitting it very easily. I will try to find it.

    Found it!
    It's not mine but I found it to be the easiest way to split them without damage

    Where does he set the umbraco? Looks like he`s puttin it on the shaft of the motor? But the shaft isn`t a umbraco screw. hmmm..

    He doesn't have a press, so he's using the screw in the center to press the shaft that's attached to the bell housing out.

    If you have access to a press, scroll up in the thread that that video is on. There is another video of someone using a press to do it. I don't have a press so I would use his method.

    You have to admit pretty ingenious for someone who doesn't have a press
