Can Atlas HO can motors be taken apart?

Hi.

 

I just got some Atlas HO stuff, trying to get them going.

I have removed the can motor from chassis, and un-screwed only one side and cleaned the brush.

They other side was quite the hassle, got screw out, but the spring was firmly stuck in there and the long brush wouldn't come out for cleaning!

 

I was able to get it to run but only with direct power applied and me helping it out by spinning it.

I did put a tab of good old Aurora Special Racing Oil on the ends and worked it in.

When I had the can motor out.. .it looked like maybe you can take it apart by slipping the plastic out that is held by the metal casting???

 

Maybe then I can clean the armature and the other brush?

 

Help!

 

Thanks!

 

Ted

Another "space shot"

Same builder as the Apollo. A little more imagination.

 

This car looks like it spent some time on the track.

 

Lots of thought and bending here.

 

Some type of spring steel from something for the drop arm spring.

 

The most interesting aspect to me is how he made a perfect circle of tubing around the can bearing and then hammered it flat so it would accept a clip. COOL 

 

Also like how the crown just seems to floating out there in space. 

 

Body ID please.

Presenting the "Apollo IX"

You probably don't have one these laying around.

 

Going through a large box of projects/restos I will probably never get to. Forgot about this gem.

 

Please ID the body. Is it possible that the body has shrunk? Wheelbase no longer lines up as the "protector" bar out front prevents the body from going forward to line up.

 

Or was this a miscalculation by the designer. Also, the big 36 interferes with the body at motor top.

 

Maybe that's why it remained "un-launched" by the original builder.

 

Quite an imagination here. Notice the pen clip as drop arm spring. 

 

Dubbed "Appollo IV " (sic) by it's builder. Named after the first unmanned Saturn V rocket launch.

 

I'll accept all comments good or bad.

Chassis ID?

I was going through my box of old Boxstock chassis from the late '80's-early 90's. Anyone remember who made these?

2017 24-Hour race results - Area 51, Storrs, CT

November 11th 2017 Area 51 Raceway hosted their annual 24 hours endurance race on their 5-lane 130 foot Ogilvie routed magnabraid track.

Screen Shot 2017-11-16 at 2.14.37 PM.png

Team Can-Am started off strong and was leading the first few heats, but then Team Shoreline got it rolling and never looked back, easily getting the win.

Screen Shot 2017-11-16 at 2.12.26 PM.png

For awhile, the other 3 teams had a close battle for 2nd, then Team Quebec suffered a crash that had them losing quite a bit of time for repairs, leaving Team Cloverleaf Gearz and Can-Am to fight it out. But then Can-Am had a motor wire come loose, and later on the rear axle shifted, which meant time in the pits. Cloverleaf Gearz drove a steady race to come home 2nd, with Can-Am 3rd and Quebec in 4th.
