Hi Guys,

I checked for a short after winding and all was ok, It is well insulated all around.
I checked the commutator sections as the brushes are quite wide and although all looked ok I still disconnected another commutator section and had 2 for the off period. It ran quite similar.
I also took the back spring out from behind the bearing just incase the rotor/bearings were tight, I may double check this though, and I made special clamping bolts on the outside so I can adjust for timing.

It runs quite strong and stable at each voltage level. It has some force behind it.

Turin what kind of current draw was your 1020 motor, with and without the generator attached. Did the current go up alot with the generator, If I remember correctly I think i read your set up had around an input of 400watts.
