Sounds like lugnuts in a hubcap, takes about 30 seconds for the spindle to turn at almost performance speed, but still rattles like crazy. Fix or replace. Griz 452. Any ideas?

WOW :eek:, That's a lot of noise! If your sure it's the motor, then I would think it's beyond repair, and a new motor is called for. You could take it to a local elec. shop and see what they say, but sounds like it is shot to me. :smile:

Have you run the motor without the belt attached? Sans pulley? Sounds like one of the pulleys may have lost its key and is slipping/rattling. If so, square and woodruff keys are available at most hardware stores. It may be sitting at the bottom of a pile of sawdust. Let us know what you find. (Replacement pulleys are easy to find also.) Luck to ya.
