Question

Bah Humbug!

Friend lent me his loco aslong as i fixed it, it wouldn't move, noticed the pick up on one side was missing, so hacked in a little old hornby tank (which had motor problems, i'm going replace that later in 2019) & stole one of its pick ups, the tender loco smoked up. Decided to replace the motor, new one didn't fit in the shell.... replace both pick ups? - No movement & no smoke (its not suposse to smoke anyhow).  Any ideas??

 

Images show it with new pickups wired in place of the old ones....

No spring to tension brushes on to motor commutator 

Insulation sleeve required between spring and brushes 

Ah. I think i understand.... So, i need to put the spring clip - with the insulation sleeve - back on the top of the motor?
