It may possibly be bent.. I can’t be sure but it’s another possibility.. if you can’t tell this poor siren must have been taken down quite.. unpleasantly and unprofessionally since it is damaged like it is

Either that or it fell over. And it would have to fall over pretty hard to bend the motor shafts, expecially as cast aluminium will degfinitely shatter before the steel motor shaft bends!

Sirens were bomb damaged as well- I've seen one with most of the stator missing after it was bo,bed while in service.

i have no clue to be honest.. it must have been something bad or fallen on one side more than the other.. either way it really needs some help and repair and im not too sure what to do as it is a lot of work.. the person i got it from says it may have come from essex if i didnt say ?.. but im not sure and indeed.. the 10 port side has a piece missing from it.. would need to be seen to explain somewhat maybe.. either way things arent quite right or streight as they should be.. and indeed i imagine they were however this is a castle castings siren (likely from the 70s/80s or such) and would not think it would have been bombed.. intresting youve seen a damaged siren like that though!.. but again im not too sure what im going to do with it

i have had a look at it today and indeed the shaft on the 12 port side is bent.. as well as that though i think the 12 port rotor also has issues for sure

Your best bet is to send the motor into a motor shop to have it inspected/repaired. And depending on the issue with the rotor, you might also be able to send it in somewhere to have it looked at.

thank you.. i dont know why i didnt think of that to be honest haha.. thats probably a good idea.. will have to see if i can find somewhere but will also need somewhere that could help with the stators/rotors.. or at least both stators an the 12 port rotor

Any willing engineering place that does small scale milling and manufacture for people should be able to help with the castings. Motor shop will do the motor stuff without question.

I agree completely for both things.. motor just needs testing but finding a place that’ll repair the stators/rotors or motor shaft doesn’t seem as easy.. or at least here anyway.. unless I’m looking in the wrong place that is.

The places that repair motors should also be able to do things with motor shafts. Most likely you'll be shafted by them when they had it back to you because its too big of a task. Look for small engineering firms around the country- I know there are a fair few, it just depends on who is willing to repair cracked castings and balance the rotors.

that is quite true i imagine they should be able to. Ahh... quite possibly.. but i can still try to see if anyone will help me or such. Thats what i was thinking of going for.. smaller engineering companies/such and indeed there are a few around and thats quite true.. will have to see about that too. Also i wanted to say thank you very much.. im not sure when but al have a look around to see if i can go to a place about it
