Shame you didn't move my posts with the links to my Taycol restoration / conversions as well.
So folks would know what this is all about.
Attached pics of Colin's Taycol Supermarine both before and after my TLC 😉
4th pic shows the motor soaking in WD40, overnight, before dismantling started.
Last pic shows the setup that I used to test the restored motor (fitted with ball races inside the old end covers😉) and Reverser conversion board.
Video of the Test Runs won't upload I'm afraid, too large.
Shame 🤔 coz it clearly shows how the diode bridge in the converter board virtually eliminated the usual prolific Taycol sparking.
Cheers, Doug 😎
