Default Help....

My T3 suddenly wont move unless you give it a shove. It performs perfectly as long as you dont stop completely. Its like theres some grit in a gear somewhere, but its not in just one place. No matter what/where, if you stop, you wont move until you kcik it or something.

Ive already cleaned the pinion/spur and sprayed out the motor. Maybe I should bust the motor open and REALLY clean it, before I go through the trans.

Could it be electronic?

Thanks

Take your entire motor apart... brush your windings with a tooth brush, motor spray/brake clean your armature and motor can, cutt the comm on the arm and put new brushes in it.

I am thinking you have a hung brush...

yeah happened to me in my mini T motor.....i opened it up and cleaned the com....too small to cut lol....and i got some other brushes from another motor n swapped em over.....runs like a beauty till it stuffs up again lol.....

its from the carbon (or wateva material the brushes are made from) builds up on the comm and makes it have a crap contact with the brushes

Heres what i would do,
First take a very small screwdriver and push in the brushes to make sure that the brushes are contacting the com. Then if that doesnt work take the whole motor apart maybe cut the com, throw some new brushes in and spray it real good. This should work.

Thanks guys, seems to be unanimous. I was about ready to go into the transmission. I did spray the motor out when this first happened. It didnt help, but I WILL go deeper today.

Thanks again
