Disassembly and Reassembly of Micro Pull-back Motor Assembly
I'm not sure which is the best forum to post this, but I was messing with a stuck micro pull-back motor today, and ended up disassembling it.
After much trial and error, I managed to reassemble it. Enclosed are some photos of a disassembled Micro Pull-back Motor Assembly, and the steps to reassemble it.
Hopefully it would be of interest to someone.
This links to Picasa Web Album for the photos.
The only problem is that the torque for the spring is too low after reassembly. I'm too lazy to try and figure out how to fix that problem, but it would be good to know how the original motor manages to achieve such high torque.
(One possible reason is that the spring came out from the chassis while it was disassembled, and could have been reinserted in the wrong direction (clockwise/anti-clockwise)). Note: Normally the spring will stay attached even when the Motor Assembly is opened.
