Team Br00d makes a great set of alignment bars....Im sure if you emailed them they would send you a instruction along with your bar set...

I just follow information above for my 19T peak 07.. but my motor performance is drop.. If i aligns the hoods directly across from each other the rpm and amp shows 35000rpm and 9amp but if i aligns each hood for get brush centered wear the rpm and amp shows 26000 and 3.6 amp.... But if i aligns the hoods directly across from each other more arcs...

brush hoods should never be aligned so you can poke the bar through both hoods in one go, the brushes will move ever so slightly when the motor spools up and so therefore its key to get the brush sitting central after this has happened.

Otherwise the brushes will wear unevenly and the motor performance and amp draw will drop off.

Thats what ive been led to believe anyways...

Im no motor tuner, but ive heard this information on a few occasions and led to believe its no bs, the way to think of it is although the brush hoods maybe 90degs to the endbell screws, the brush hoods themselves are not always the same dimensions as they can open out through use, or poor manufacturing tolerances....

so the brush can tilt ever so slightly and run off centre to the commutator.

Less brush contact can give all sorts of problems when its not running flush to the commutator, such as uneven brush wear and increased amp draw.
