PHYSICAL PROBLEMS WITH ROTOR

The Rotor is simply a very long single stand of wire wrapped around the core
of the rotor. If any part of this wire is broken or "shorted" then the rotor will not function properly. On some Rotors, one end of this wire may come disconnected from the slip rings. Inspect the back side of the slip ring area to see if a wire has come loose. They are usually soldered onto the slip ring. In some cases this broken connection can be repaired. A break in the middle of the coil of wire could possibly be repaired (if you can see it), but if more than one break exists, it will be impossible to determine which wires to connect. If the break occurs in the "under layers" of the coil then you won't be able to see the break. A continuity test will determine such an open circuit. PICTURES COMING SOON.

ROTOR REMOVAL FROM ENGINE SHAFT

The following proceedure is written for those who can understand the physical design features of Generators and Engine shafts for Generators. Engine shafts are designed and shaped with a "taper", not a straight shaft. The Rotor is also designed with a similar "taper" to mate with the engine shaft. Once the rotor and engine shaft have been installed, the taper design of the two help to "lock" the two components together. To remove the Rotor, this "taper lock" must be broken to cause the Rotor to release from the shaft. The term broken is not to imply that you will physically break anything. Broken is used to define the result of the engine shaft "releasing the rotor" from is tight lock on the engine shaft. The following assumes the Endbell and Stator surrounding the Rotor have been removed. To remove the Rotor from the engine shaft proceed as follows. Tools needed, a hammer and long block of wood such as a 2X4 (long enough to provide adequate reach without personal injury) and personal protection items such as Eye Protection and Gloves. Other tools such as Pullers are not good for this type of removal as there are no good solid surfaces for the puller to work with. Using a Puller may cause damage to the Rotor. Place the block of wood so it is at a right angle against the Rotor shaft or the side of the Rotor. Do not strike on the slip ring area or any other soft areas which will become damaged during this process. Care must be taken not to damage the Rotor, especially if the Rotor is of useable condition and intended on being "re-installed" at a later time. Striking the wooden punch, causing the energy transfer to force the Rotor to tilt against its longitudinal axis and "breaking" the lock freeing it from the Engine shaft. This may have to be done several times to break the taper lock. Be cautious not to let the Rotor Fall from its position. Support or cushion the Rotor underside so it will come to rest on a padding of some sort if it were to free fall off the shaft. Sometimes a slight tug on the Rotor after a few strikes of the block of wood will reveal a Loose Rotor on the engine shaft. DO NOT STRIKE THE ROTOR DIRECTLY WITH A HAMMER. The block of wood described above should be used as a punch. Proper personal protection devices such as Eye Protection Goggles and Gloves are strongly suggested. PICTURES COMING SOON.
