Lots of help from spinningmagnets' teardown thread: https://endless-sphere.com/forums/viewto ... 16&t=51310
and Spicerack's cooked MAC repair thread: https://endless-sphere.com/forums/viewto ... =2&t=34806

Tape color-coded phase wires for later:
Cut and removed wires from axle:

Removed the key and washer:
The disassembly: Note the small parts in a coffee cup. It has a lid, too!
