I've got just a couple questionable spots on my GE motor and I'm just curious if I could just put liquid tape on those spots to reinsulated them? I don't want to go through the hassel of masking off the stator just to spray varnish in a couple spots.

Insulating varnish is the only product to use on the stator.

Adam,  From time to time, I need to touch up a small spot or two and only have a spray can of the correct paint.  I spray some paint in a small container, allow some of the solvent to evaporate, then use a small brush to apply the paint to the spot(s).  Might be worth a try with your varnish.

Where can that be acquired?

Try this link:

 I believe most people could find it locally by opening the phone book and calling electrical supply shops or electric motor repair shops. Ask each place you call to recommend who may carry it. When I did this, I found it within 10 minutes at a shop about a mile from my home. Advantage: No Shipping Cost & No Waiting.

I'll have to stop by the alternator and starter repair shop that's on my way home to see if they can recommend a local source.

I actually used shellac once to reinsulate a ceiling fan before I really knew better. However, that fan is still perpetually running fine 10 years later.

Isn't that what was used in the early days?
