Default Rebuildiing a Motor (or cleaning)

How do you properly maintain an electric motor? Do you just open the motor, spray clean the armature, check for debris in the can, and clean up the endbell?

if you want to do it the easy way you can just spray into the endbell and can with the motor still assembled spin the arm a few times while spraying, just take out the brushes while doing this, and while you have the brushes out clean them with a comm stick as well as the comm. relube the bushings and reinstall brushes and your ready to go.

the way i maintain my stock motors- i tear the whole motor down, true the comm on the lathe, clean the slots, polish the shafts, spray everything down, clean inside brush hoods, reserate brushes or replace, break in motor @ 3v for 3 minutes.
