    Hi, Does anyone know where I might get the old syle (4-1/2") western plow electric motor rebuilt. I have two and had to buy another I was hoping I could get the other two rebuilt. I think they're "Ford" starter components but I'm not sure. Thanks

    I had a problem with my motor 2 years ago where it was moving real slow. I ordered one, but in the meantime I ripped mine apart, cleaned up the brushes and whatever it is that they ride against, put it all back together and it worked. New motor is still sitting on the shelf.

    If youre not ambitious, search for starter/alternator rebuilders in your area and they should be able to help you out.
