These are on an A B A diesel unit. Not sure I want to invest that much into it, about $125. It looks good just as a static display on the layout whose curves are too tight to run long passenger cars. Layout is Dave George's Golden Blackhawk and Central City. We mostly run Micro trains diesels at show.Ed S

Couple of thoughts. If the motors are that messed-up, you should probably replace the brushes. Also since you've already gotten to the motors out and the mechanics cleaned, you might want to consider upgrading to a 5-pole motor from the existing 3-pole. Improves the low speed performance on the Mikado.
