I have a 8x1 motor that I am having trouble with.
When power is connected to the motor it will not go until you give the armature a little turn then it is away until the motor stops then it won't fire back up until the armature is turned again. The comm has been cut with a new lathe bit and it has new brushes installed.
sounds like a hung brush. Check to see that the brushes move freely in the hoods. Also check the bearing to see that it is not bound up.
