Title: Lubrication of WBB Can Motors
Post by: 671 on February 16, 2011, 06:07:47 PM
     What is the best way to oil these can motors? The space between the flywheel and the housing does not allow for a needle point oiler to have access to the shaft bushing. The gear side is also a problem.
      Correct lubrication will allow many, many years of trouble free performance. I maintain my equiptment. These little "Can" motors seem to not be designed/engineered for periodic upkeep.
       I can easily remove the Can from the truck or Loco chasis but I have not figured a way to lubricate the armature shaft bushings.

       Anyone with a solution  HELP!!!

                                   Thanks.......671

No need to oil can motors they are sealed. Just oil and grease the wheels and gears.
