i bought a new idea electric tractor with belly motor.  It looked to be all there.  The drive motor was locked upmotor  Itook it to to the motor repair place when they open it up found the motor at one time was full of water and was unrebuildable is there any motors out there?

:welcometogttalk:   sounds exotic, but there must be motors. A picture may help to indentify what you need.

You can rebuild it, water didn't ruin everything . Got a pic of the motor?

There is a Yahoo Group for NI and GE garden tractors. I have read a number of post about rebuilding motors on that site. We use to be a NI Electric dealer but I sold all of the parts and manuals to a guy in Kansas I think. He had a lot of parts. I don't remember who he was but I know he sells a lot of stuff on Ebay.

What's brand?  GE or others by them?   Start with that and maybe a picture of whole rig with serial or model numbers. Any brand or ID numbers on just the motors?

Hello and Welcome.  What model of tractor do you have?

Many parts are still available including drive motors.

Suppliers

And a really good place to look for info besides the 3 GE tractor sites

Hope this helps.

Yep!  What he said.  Have done business with Clean power Supply and Electric tractor Store.   Both have been good to deal with.  Rick
