only had 13/14g replacement spokes, instead of the 12g spokes.
i think the anti-corrosion juice that i put on made the spokes loosen up quite a bit. and they always squeaked, even when tightened and trued up.
nevermind the fact that the spokes don't seat in the flange.

i liked fechter's idea of a circular tube outside the motor, and clear is great to be able see any spill, but i think i'll drill a smaller hole at an angle and epoxy the tube in place. there just isn't a lot of clearance for big stuff in there.
