Shrekair - the 28gram figure is the one you want.

I have had really good results with a Putnam Green shunt brush on the positive with the stock copper spring and the stock(blueprinted) Orion brush on the negative with a green spring. This is the setup I use for sedan.

hey can someone tell me the process of how to find the center of the magnetic gap. maybe my terminology is bad, but you know what i'm looking to do. i just don't really know if i've ever shimmed correctly. how is this done?

I'll try my best to explain

Basically, take all the shims off the arm, put it back in the can (with the brushes out), and give it a spin.

When it comes to rest, it should be sitting in the middle of the field.

Then give it a push and a pull to feel which end needs some shims.

Fit shims, and repeat, until you end up with an arm that sits in the middle of the field, with only a tiny amount of play each way.

that makes sense sosidge. it's just difficult cause it seems that the bushing drag leaves the arm at whatever end i accidentally pulled/pushed it to when spinning. i'll try to better my skills. many thanks.
