Sounds like the Trinity Cobalt. The only one I've seen with any kind of light.

the Orion Revolution motors also have LED's on their capacitor boards, as well as the new offerings from Integy..

What class was the motor? Stock? Mod? 19T?

And does that led makes toasts and tea aswell ? Seriously there's no way a simple LED can tell you if your brushes are burnt.
