In these pics, the twines of the new brushes have been routed throught the solder holes of the holder, and the springs have been inserted. The twine is pulled tight enough to keep the spring from extruding the brush all the way so that it would flip out. This will keep the brush from wearing out all the way to the point where the twine is connected. If that happens, the spring will become part of the circuit, heat up, and lose its elasticity. Note that I have wrapped the twines into the mounting ears. this will hold them in place until the soldering is done.
