View Full Version : Brush cooling
08-19-2002, 01:57 PM
I was going to water cool my motor with a cooling coil. Some sources tell me to put brush coolers on it to. Is it nessesary or will the coil cool it enough? I plan on making the coil and the brush coolers if need be. Can someone please help answer my questions. Pictures are a big help also so if you made your own brush coolers or coil please send pics!!! THANKS ALL!!!

I don't follow those instructions, there over my head thats why I just ask normal people to help explain it to me. Thats what a forum is for not to look up things. I would have done that in the first place if I wanted to. Someone please answer those questions and post pictures if you have them.

evader, I'll try , first it is very important to cool the brushes, there are a few different types of motors and these get the brushes cooled differently, lets take an 05 car motor with changeable brushes,
first take all the springs etc off, and the brushes out, get small square brass tubing, solder this to the outside of the brush housing, be careful not to get any solder inside the brush housing, and positioned in a way so you will be able to get your brushes and springs back in, (sorry no pictures handy), anyway this is going to be like a heat sink, then you solder two short pieces of brass tubing to this (sort of like making a cross) when both sides are done, you basically have 2 short pieces of tube 1 on each brush hood, the water supply comes in on one end, then you use a short piece of silicone tube to connect to the other side, then another piece of silicon tube to connect to your cooling coil, for sealed can motors (600 , 700's etc) it's a bit easier solder two short pieces of brass tubing onto the solder lugs, and plumb as above, hope it helps , cheers eddie

Thanks eddie. Those instructions I can follow. I have a 700 so it sounds like it'll be pretty easy.

Evader, this really works on the 700, you will notice the difference right away take a look at this thread for some pictures , it will help
take care ,eddie

Hey Eddie thanks that helps a ton. All I have to do is get the motor now so I can do it. I ordered it like three weeks ago and I still isn't here. Thats funny Andrew trying to make excuses for himself, if the other terminal was better I wonder why he didn't show that one.
