5-pole armature: how to replace the 3-pole armature (8800)
- In Germany last March I was told that there is no 5-pole
*motor* for small switchers/tank engines
such as 8800, 8804, 8805, 8864, 8865. They told me though
they you can get the armature. So I bought the armature.
Now it's Christmas and I finally have time to install
the 5-pole motors I bought in March. In studying the
exploded diagrams for the 8800, I note that
the armature is one component of a part identified as
"molded chassis (outfitted with armature, ...)". Now that
I've disassembled my 8800, I see that the armature is indeed
pressed onto the worm gear that drives the wheels, and
it's all in that molded chassis. Simple hand pressure does
not separate the worm gear from the armature axle.
Any tips on how to remove the 3-pole armature so that
I can install the 5-pole armature?
Thank you. And Happy New Year.
