I wont be rude at all but something is VERY fishy here.BIRDMAN doesnt use Reedy 767's in his motor's.
He uses a brush similar to Putnams.
Dgull-Cool to see your trying to help.
The motor could have been damaged in transit,dropped by someone at the store and more.If it's truly a DUD then birdman will take care of you.
It may be just the gearing or a bad batch of brushes.Maybe they ran good in the beginning and dried out or something?
Im not making excuses Im just showing you that THINGS HAPPEN.
Cut the motor,put Reedy 767's on both sides and Red Springs on both sides.
Try a 16,17 and then a 18 till you find what it likes.
Goodluck with the motor and after these changes if it's still a DUD contact Birdman and he will take care of you.Get the packaging or contact the store to get his #.
P.S.S.Im not sponsored or affiliated by Birdman.I just know that if something is truly wrong with the motor he will help.He is a stand up guy.
