Rebuilding the King Rocket Ride Motor

Dayton Electric Motor Rebuild
Motor rebuild before and after.

This week I tear apart the electric motor for our King Amusement Company Supersonic Rocket Ride.

This is a 1 hp Dayton motor with a centrifugal clutch. It needed new bearings, removal of some internal oxidation, touching up some insulation and a fresh coat of paint.

Ran into a problem with the cooling fan though and in this video I reach out for some help sourcing a replacement.

Dayton Model No. 6K827L 1hp
