Default Insinkerator 333

I need to take apart my Insinkerator 333. The nut on the motor shaft
won't budge. I've tried soaking it with penetrating oil.

To loosen it, does it the nut turn CCW or CW?

Any other suggstions will be appreciated.

Got it!
The nut turns CCW to loosen.

It just took a couple of hours of penetrating oil to get it motivated.

If you knew which way the grinding plate rotated when operating, it's a
safe bet that the nut would come off by turning it in the opposite
direction.

Where can you get spare parts for these units?

It's an even better bet that the nut would come off by turning in the *same*
direction. Think about how the arbor nut threads onto a portable circular saw,
for example, or on a table saw or radial arm saw.
