OK, here we go.

for those who have more or less patiently waited for pics from a motor brush job (not an alternator), I have got some more visuals. This is a Ford blower motor, which an automotive mechanic was so kind to detach for me.

So, in the upper pic, you see one possible method of mounting the brushes. These are on pivoting holders. In the lower pic (yea, that's my well manicured hand there) you see me pivoting one of the holders away from the commutator. The concave curvature at the tip of the brush is well visible.
