I bought a used Brent CXC wheel with a blown motor. At $100 I still would have bought it even if I had looked up the price of a replacement motor first. However, I don't have $450+ for a motor at this time. Has anyone had any luck using an alternative motor? A friend has a CXC as well and his motor says Mcmillan Electric Company, my (dead) motor says Brent. They are similarly sized but have some obvious differences. I wasn't sure if Brent switched the motor at some point or if my friends has an "after market" replacement motor (he doesn't know either). It got me to thinking that it couldn't be that difficult to use a different motor if you know a thing or two about motors. Unfortunately I don't know a thing, nor two things, about motors and so I am reaching out to see if anyone here might. Would be great to find a model number for an affordable motor that pops right in, but I feel I could fabricate a bracket to hold a different motor if needed. Either it can't be done or someone surely has already done it. Which is it?
Alternatively, does anyone know where to place and re-glue the permanent magnets in a Brent 1hp motor?
