Run on pump
« on: August 24, 2019, 11:03:10 PM »
Changed some brushes on an electric coolant pump from a bmw yesterday instead of using cotton to hold brushes like I did with my old galaxy I used a different method which worked better.

Fitted brushes and put a nut (anything right size will do) in the space where com fits to hold brushes back,dropped a touch of water on to the brushes and popped in the freezer for an hour. Once out freezer brushes were held by ice so I was able to assemble pump easy before ice thawed out and allowed brushes to move in contact with the com.
