I don't have a spare motor for this car. BTW the low speed gets used
more and would be more likely to be worn.

To each his own, in trouble shooting methods!
Your helpful (?) suggestion to Robby was off the wall useless  
inasmuch as he never indicated that he had a spare motor.
Further, he had indicated that the motor works on High, therefore my  
logic says that the high speed brushes are servicable and that the  
low speed positive brush would likely be in even better shape. Easily  
proven by application of + to the low speed input terminal. Are you  
loaning Robby the spare motor? From your car, for the trivial test?
