    32E 2 Brush Conversion Help

    I removed the 3rd brush and rewired it per service bulletin 418; 3rd brush wire went to switch terminal along with the bottom coil top field wire. The other two field wires went to the top brush hold down screw (relay terminal).

    When I attempted to motor the generator, it locked up and refused to rotate.

    Any idea what the issue is?

    Sometimes a 32E will not automatically motor with out a little help from you. Did you try to make it motor manually with a twist from your hand while you had it under power ?

    It wouldn't turn one I applied power. Found my jumper from terminal to case needed rework. Everything works now. Thanks
