(ET) Field short-out
Ok, tonight I had the famed ground fault bite me nicely. Apparently I
have a second fault in the lift wire, resulting in half the pack
draining while still because the fault was going thru the field.
Bad news: When I fire up the tractor with this fault and connect the
tractor lift wire to +18volts, the motor slows down.
My guess is the short might be inside the motor in the field windings.
If so, any idea how I could fix this? Can the motor be repaired, or is
it time for a new E20 motor?
Anyone have a spare?
