Thanks. I'll give it a look this morning. I did see the two wires going into a white plastic fitting that could be the brush block. I have been trying to find a parts manual on-line that would have a picture. In any case thanks, I'll post results. Marv

Marv, that is it. Remove the air cleaner housing for easier access. Remove the retainer bolt and disconnect the two connectors. Take some contact cleaner and clean the brushes, blow the stator out with air. Should be good to go after that.
