I have disassembled motor that I’m trying to put it back together.
It’s from a Meepo that lost the hubcap during a ride. I found the hubcap back. But I took the motor apart before I realized that the noise I was hearing was due to the missing hubcap. It looks obvious now, but it didn’t then
Anyway, the problem now is that when I screw the hubcap in first and try to fit the motor in, the magnets grab the motor and I can’t push it all the way in.
And when I fit the motor in first, I can’t screw the hubcap back in place. Because there is nothing sticking out enough to apply force.
The way I see, the best way should be to put the hubcap in first then slide the motor in place. But how do you do that when you have magnets pulling the motor to the sides? I saw a guy doing it on youtube, but the video cuts off when he’s about to do it and he explains later that he had to twist and push. Which I tried and tried.
Is there a trick to do this besides twist and push? Anyone ever open these hubs and put them back together?
