I think the etek was meant to run CW as there is a squealing sound when I run it in the other direction that comes from the brushes.
I think I messed with the timing and didn't get it back to neutral a while back, but I did a no-load test anyway:
CW @ 12v: 3.0 amps
CCW @ 12v: 3.10 amps
I heard of someone smoking a PMG 132 motor running it CCW here, so that got me a little worried. I talked to Brian at thunderstruck-ev.com, and he said that someone in Australia was running two eteks horizontally opposed in a car and one kept smoking. It was the one that was being run CCW. That got me a bit more worried. He also said that the brushes are going to wear a lot faster.
I think I can keep the current to each motor equal by advancing the timing on the CW motor if the CCW motor at neutral timing just happens to be drawing more current.
Anyone have any experience with this, or ideas/comments?
