Dave G .......... The one set of red green wires top right in pic I soldered to one brush. I applied power to the other brush and negative to either of the remaining 2 red green wires. One of those for one direction and the other for the other direction.
I did notice your comment on going to the body of the motor for ground but I could not get that to work.
Ted....I had done an extensive search on my issues and did learn about problems with new brushes. Unfortunately I have already discarded the old brushes.
