« Part 6: Infeed / Outfeed Roller results after electrolysis Part 7 of Saving A Jet JWP-15CS From Dump series Part 8: 24hour results of EvapoRust and table, "hack" paint job »

Dunked all nuts & bolts in EvapoRust for 2 days and laid out in some kind of organized fashion:

Washed base and panel covers. Rust is still present on these metal pieces… unsure how to go about it. Quite possibly leave as is, as I have never done metal painting. Besides, color matching would be a chore ? I would have to ask other LJ machinery restoration folks about how to proceed.

Took the motor apart just a little bit to see how to go about cleaning and checking things out. The capacitor looks to be in ok shape. Going to have to figure out how to get the rust off the housing (been spoiled with EvapoRust and electrolysis).

And finally figured out a good way to get rust off the lower bed. Flipped upside down and poured the last of the Evaporust with some other parts into some sheet metal I had laying around.

Hi:
I would not use any cleaners on the motor. Liquids are it’s worst problem. If it turns freely, you should be good to go. If it’s good just sand it and tape op the parts and spray it with Black paint. They are good motors. Make sure it’s good and dry.
Have Fun

Bigrock… ah.. good idea. didnt think about that. Will use straight sand paper to knock as much rust off the motor housing as possible. I was worried about any liquids so halted that aspect til I figured it out. I HAVE to do something because that rust looks horrible, even though does not affect anything or I may never see the motor again once all assembled… in the back of my mind, I’ll always know that rust was there so best hit it now :)

Good job Holbs keep at it and she’ll turn out fine.

If you can find the coarse block it removes rust the fastest:

posted on forums just seconds ago about assistance. If I remove rust on the metal panels, do I have to proceed with auto body type painting ?

Looking good!

I would sand the outside of the motor with some 120 grit and spray with Rustoleum rattle can. Same for those areas of sheet metal that are rusty.

Carry on…..............and keep us posted.

I would mask off any air inlets / outlets before sanding, wire brushing, painting, etc.
