Hobart N50 restore-ers please chime in!
Hello to all and thank you in advance for your help!
I finally purchased a used n50 for my wife and have just begun the tear-down process for rebuilding. I have looked through many n50 restoration projects on this site and am hoping someone who has experience might be able to tell me, based on how this unit sounds / functions in the short video, what parts may be worn out.
My observations based on other videos I have watched:
1. There is excess ticking or whirring sounds when powered on and also as it slows down after being switched off.
2. It seems as though there is supposed to be a brake or clutch to slow the unit down after being powered off which may not be doing its job anymore. (There is a change of noise once the motor slows down to a certain rpm). I did notice the mechanism at the back of the motor shaft that has two springs looks like it would be some sort of centripetal brake that activates below a certain motor speed, I think there might be some missing pieces not allowing it to properly function.
Those who have experience with these mixers, your expertise is much needed / appreciated!

Many thanks and Happy New Year to all!
