And here, the upper pic shows the brush from the other holder. The twine was crimped on the wiring, and I had to cut it off, leaving enough to twirl and solder the new twine on the assembly when properly fixing the motor. this can be done because the brush is immobile in the holder, and there's no strain to the twine.

The lower pic shows a temporary brush that I fitted to test the motor. It is actually one of the old brushes from the alternator job above. The motor worked purr-fectly with that (I plugged it into the 5V output of an old computer PSU for trying it out) so now I know that I only need to get some brushes tomorrow.
