Re: Looking for old D.C. Motor. Please Help!

Welcome to Sailnet.

Uh.. is there something special about that motor that a replacement can't handle? More information would help. is it a starter generator?

Siba ElectricSiba Electric

Siba Electric

Siba was a German manufacturer of magnetos used on early motorcycles

1954 The Siba Electric company was formed in 1954. It supplied a combined starter generator unit for use on motor cycles, scooters and mopeds. The units were at first imported from Siba Elektrik G.m.b.H., which had a 50 per cent interest in the company

By 1957 the company was itself manufacturing a substantial number of the component parts and importing others from Robert Bosch A.G.

Can you imagine wanting an English electrical device?

In all seriousness, can the old motor just be rebuilt? Windings can be rewound, brushes replaced etc.

That looks very similar to a Lucas Cav starter motor. What is wrong with it? Can it not be repaired maybe by rewinding.

In places like Grenada there are guys in little workshops doing this sort of thing all the time.

I don't know about the motor. When I want something odd, I save a search on ebay.
If that's your ketch, I want to crew.

Re: Looking for old D.C. Motor. Please Help!

Hello - from North West England !
I don't know whether I can help but I have a Siba 12 volt DC electric motor described as follows.
Siba Electric LTd Cambderley, Surrey. Two Speed DC Motor. Type TM4124. (Rotation as you describe) Ser 2/68 Voltage 12 D.C..

I can't remember what it came from but feel that it may have been in a lawnmower I once had abne used.

It looks very similar to the one you have shown pics. of. The case measures 16cms long (approx) and 9 cms across. The spindle protrudes approx 25/30 mm. Main power inlet at opposite end.

I have recently got it out to place on eBay but found your request.

just let me know if it's of interest and then we can talk further.

By the way it's quite heavy.
Regards Bob Taylor
