Motor on the bench waiting for another day. It wines like a very p@^*@ed off cat. Suspect the bearings are to blame. Apparently they're 22mm OD, 8mm ID. Going to pinch one of my daughter's skateboard bearings and give it a whirl. shhh...
Take the main motor housing off. I'd bet it's full of rusty coloured water. With any luck a good drain, dry out, clean up and degrease and you might get it going again.

Oh and don't forget to drill a 3mm drain hope in the bottom corner to stop it all happening again.

Good luck.
