Help with a brushed Reedy Mod
I've got a fairly old Reedy Modified with a silver can. The very last of the label came off a while back, but I could see a bit of the Reedy logo, so I know it's theirs! I'm pretty sure it's a 20 turn double, or close to it.
My problem is, There are no markings on the can or the bell for the timing. I've just been playing by turning the bell while running without load and trying to hear a "sweet spot".
Needless to say i'm chewing up brushes like nobody's business!
I read somewhere you can use a multi-meter to find zero timing, but lost the site it was on. Does anyone know how to do this? I know once I get to zero I can come back 12 degrees or so and then start playing with it.
Also, any recommended brushes.
BTW I know I should "just go brushless", but Santa hasn't come for a while....
