See Cleaning instructions (WP 0316 00).
Compressed air used for cleaning purposes will not exceed 30 psi (207 kPa). Use only with effective
chip guarding and personal protective equipment (goggles/shield, gloves, etc.).
Volatile mineral spirits burn easily and fumes can explode. Do not smoke or allow open flame nearby
when using volatile mineral spirits. Failure to do so may cause serious injury or death to personnel.
Do not clean starter parts in dry cleaning solvent. Dry cleaning solvent may damage certain electrical parts.
Clean starter parts in mineral spirits and dry using low pressure compressed air or clean rag.
See Inspection Instructions (WP 0317 00).
Check length of brushes (14 and 15) against length of
new brush. Brushes that are less than two-thirds the
length of a new brush must be replaced.
All oil-soaked brushes must also be replaced.
Check to ensure that brushes fit well in brush holder
(20), without binding.
Inspect springs (21) for distortion or discoloration.
Do not turn down commutator or undercut insu-
lation between commutator bars. Replace arma-
ture if commutator cannot be restored
satisfactorily in Step 7 below.
Check condition of commutator, and clean, if neces-
sary, using emery paper.
