   Most likely are the 2 resistors - the flat silver colored strips ahead 
   the battery charger, mounted to the bracket the timer is on. When they 
   fail, you can usually see the break. The posts they are mounted to may 
   loose. The switches are the last micro-switches on the throttle 
   but less likely to be the problem.

That doesn't seem right.  I thought the metallic resistors were the
ones that decrease the armature current and are invoked in the low
speeds.  The field weakening resistors, which would cause the current
problem if open, are on some other card.
