I wouldn't be surprised if the brushes were mushroomed a bit and causing it to not want to leave the park position. If it were me, I would try to rebuild it myself, clean up the brushes (replace if absolutely necessary), and re-lube everything. The fact that it runs at all says it's not that far from working properly. Dave Casey On Sat, October 1, 2016 7:11 am, 62-65-mail-list-club@xxxxxxxxxxx wrote: > Thanks for all the replies.
