Default RUNNING IN MOTORS

Hi,

What is the best method of running in motors ? Can they be run in water using a 6 cell pack ? Do I need to put a resistor across the motor 1st ?

Thanks for your help,

If you have acharger with a motor run feature you can just run it for 3 - 5 mins at 2 volts.
If your motor is a Johnson silver can run it in a water and soap solution for a few mins with 2 alkaline torch batteries.
