Can you measure the resistance across the terminals and report in?

Take several readings while rotating the motor shaft slightly. That will give a range of readings (depending on how many sectors of the commutator are in contact with the brushes).  Then note the range of resistance.

Thanks Peteski.  I'll find out this weekend when I get it programmed with the old motor in it.
