Iliocht’s 2.4m wind turbine 2011 part 3

Checked the bearings the front one is ok but the back one is past it I don’t normally leve the seal on but this one looks like it held the water in!

You can see the race is worn

 

Good bearings they lasted four years and were made in Romania.

Cutting off all the old tape on the coils.

It looks like the stator survived the over-speed session the copper doesn’t look burnt which is more that can be said for the tape.

Found a nice big air pocket and you can see how the tape couldn’t stand the heat. But it might have helped to cool the stator as it seems to be good at holding water that’s what the drops are in the hole and the tape on all the coils had water in it.
