John Warren's Album: Intermittent short

Finding this short was rather tiresome and time consuming, sometimes it would run for a few minutes and at other times just an inch or so. The cracked axle gear let the two wheel halves touch in the center (creating the intermittent short), so new gears and I will grind the axles ends off a touch shorter, to prevent this in the future, this is a friends engine.

    John Warren A friends engine had an intermittent short. Only found t by pressing in on the test leads to the wheel sides, then it would short out, no short without pressure.
