Question on the motor can ends...
While racing NasTruck on Saturday, a turnmarshal put my truck down right in front of the full speed pack coming out of turn 2 and the back of my truck was absoltely demolished.
In this wreck, the mounting screws on my 4600 motor were ripped out of the can and are now completely stripped. On a 10L4O there is only one orientation you can put a castle motor in to allow for wire clearance, so I can not turn the whole can 90 degrees to use the 2 remaining good holes.
I pulled the end cap and pulled the rotor and inner bearing out and tried to get the pinion end of the can to free up intending to rotate that portion while leaving the wiring location where it needs to be. There appers to be no way to pop the end cap off of the front, nothing I did would budge it.
Could this have been pinched in during the accident, or is this end not meant to be removed? I actually had to grind slots in the 3 small screws and use a standard screwdriver to pull the screws out they were so tight after the wreck.
Too bad this can is only about 2 months old and already destroyed, but I'm trying to make the best of it since the can now looks like it's been through a war
