Answers :

If you are the original owner,you can send it to Kirby rebuild and have them rebuild it.For a non-original,it is around $300.They go thru it,replace the parts needing replaced,buff the metal covers to remove the blemishes,and send it back to you.It will look and operate as it did when you first purchased it.Call Kirby Rebuild in Cleveland,Ohio.

The motor that came with this industrial machine is a Tacsew Clutch Motor model: RM1878-1H. It is way too fast when starting out and usually breaks the thread.

Not exactly a blow gun. Convertible blower/vac - Sears Craftsman. Wire broke off ONE brush in the motor. Paid about $90 for the vac - Sears lists the WHOLE motor as one part - $88. Have requested brushes (they are provided with a lot of my 'cheap' Harbor Freight tools) but no go. Just get the canned reply - buy the whole motor. Actually got it working again... CAREFULLY drilled and tapped a 4-40 screw into the brush and soldered the lead to that... Always a way, isn't there?
