Bought 2 1961 Continental P.W. motors off Ebay for my 1961 Galaxie. Looked same in ad. They do look like they should mount up the same and did hook them to harness. They work fine with same 4 wire set up but the motors are about 1/2" longer. Haven't tried mounting them yet but there should be room. I've taken apart the Galaxie motors before and cleaned them, so I thought I would see what goes on inside these. These have heavy end caps instead of splitting into 2 stamped metal halves like the Galaxie's. 1 end, unfortunately, holds the brushes and it doesn't look like it will come off so reinstalling brushes is a major pain. I chipped about a 1/3 off the face of one of the brushes. How much of the surface is needed or do I need to replace it? Guessing the Continental windows are a lot heavier? Are these simply heavy duty? Will they work easier or is there a problem?
