I received a badly damaged Tidalforce motor recently. I was curious what had happened to it. It's the first time I've actually opened a Tidalforce motor. I won't open a working Tidalforce motor since I might damage it. However, opening a damaged one seemed doable. One of the magnets seems to have hit the poles of the motor and cracked In half. That caused a catastrophic failure of the entire motor. The previous owner damaged the bearings on the torque arm side and also the seals as well. This may not be salvageable.
