    Conversion Kit, motor electric lead shorted

    Thanks again all. Does anyone know an easy/ish way to remove the PCB board that the brushes are attached to? (I'm feeling stubborn and will probably pull it apart again now, desolder, add some kind of spring, and try to effect a more permanent solution). Also, the first article linked by...
