Dismantle Hoover motor (Filing machine)

Hello all,
The one that came with my Excel table top filing machine.
I'm stripping the machine as it's plastered with paint, and in any case, wish to check it over & give it a clean set of clothes.
Cannot find any reference number or any indication of model etc. on any of the castings or parts except the Excel name cast on the base.
The base dimensions:  370x260mm
I wish to dismantle the motor, again due to layers of paint, but not sure how to proceed, so need advise please.
The end bearing caps have what appear to be 'C' spanner slots on their circumferences.
Have got the long bolts out holding the end covers in place, but apart from the covers coming off of the case recesses, no further, hence my request.
Hope someone can help.
Motor details:
Aluminium frame.
Hoover A.C. Motor
Made in Scotland
Type: 738811BF1309C (the 11 could be an H)
Ser. No. 70379XJ
B.S. Frame (no details)
H.P. 1/2
PH. 1
R.P.M. 1425

Geoff - only 55% humidity, 80% last week!
