(ET) Motor puzzler and Alltrax
The best answer I got on this problem was that it could be a shorted
armature. However, the problem has gone away, so maybe we have an
intermittently shorted armature :-(.
Just to complicate things, we recently purchased an Alltrax for this
machine (an E15). So my question is: is it safe to go ahead and install
it under the circumstances? What will an Alltrax do if the armature is
partially or fully shorted? Any other thoughts?

I'm having trouble with an E-15. It looks like a missing field;
it "chugs" at high current draw on the slowest speed, then
overspeeds when you bring it up to full. However, it still does
that when I connect the field directly to the battery, and I
measure the field resistance at 17 ohms, which is what I believe
it should be. So I don't have an open field, and the field
circuitry is not the problem. Any ideas?
