Can't even buy a retired sub or carrier with the power plant intact.
Well that's a deal breaker for me...

I've gotten it up and running, but no joy on generating any. How do I check the windings? Here's what I'm see at the brushes.

green scotch brite
and make long strips works the best .
remove the brushes so you can wrap the scotch brite around the rotor.
and only while rotating the rotor like you would in a lathe.
do not scrub them with out constant rotation or you will make flat spots.

When you say "rotating the rotor", do I run the engine?

most remove the spark plug first and use the starter.
or remove the recoil and use a drill with a socket off the flywheel nut.

run the engine is a good way to get hurt.

I'm not looking for yet another way to get hurt. I'll remove the plugs and run the starter. Thanx!

at least you can control the spin on off with the electric.
we use the drill method if the gen system is total apart with all covers off for rebuild.
