(did i do that right? that's Clucking huge, no?)

So.... is my motor still too small?

I tried a 12v car battery (briefly) with no motion, so i'll check the brushes after evaluations come in from all my friends on the forums.
The electric spark results i got were from connecting A1 to A2 and D1 to D2.
I also don't know if the PSL plugs are for sensors or some type of control interface to actually engage the motor.

Anything you can tell me will be helpful - don't forget, you're trying to help someone with a brain the size of a fowl do an EV. (target vehicle not yet chosen, it looks like I'll have to go with a RWDrive with tons of batt space.)


Cost to me: $60
4? brushes (or maybe it's 8 brushes in 4 pairs?)
4 brush vents (or are the rubber seals missing?)
