Jim got my motor finished and it is beautiful! Bad paint job is a
thing of the past. It will be a shame to put the battery boxes back
in. No more short to ground!

He fixed the short and future failure points. A cold solder on the
field coils was bad and would have failed. A winding on the armature
was bent almost touching another, fixed. Heavy rust and acid crud
removed not painted over.

If I had sent my motor to Jim in the first place, even with
shipping, I would have saved money. I don't/won't recommend anyone
else.

This machine has been garaged for 17 years.
I am upgrading it and getting it running. Tabitha,
my daughter, named it, "Pikachu". It's yellow and black,
electric and contains Japanese parts, so I went with it.

Matt,
While you have the motor out can you measure the resistance
from each terminal? It might be nice for future reference,
and I may need it. I would also like a picture!
