Can you say "fresh air"....

Got new brushes from ACE hardware, can't remember what they were supposed to fit, filed them down to size, soldered them in, and then the durned connector on the motor broke off while installing it. NO PROBLEM, American ingenuity (thanks to my Uncle Arthur) took over and soldered a set of pigtails to hook up to the wiring harness and once again have air blowing around (WOOOO HOOOOOO).

While I was at ACE I was looking for some oil for the motor and found "Zoom Spout Oiler". Bottle says turbine oil made for bearings, elecric motors, bushings, blower motors, and high temp environments. A couple of drops on each end and no more squeeks and it spins like a new one. I'm going to try some on my throttle linkages tomorrow.
