Hi guys,

Don't know if this is the right place to put this post, oh well!

I've a Professor Motor controller and a polarity switch kit which needs to be installed. Due to my total lack of knowledge and confidence in the electronics field, I fear that I really shouldn't be attempting this particular manovure.

I'm just wondering if any of you guys out there is willing to do this job for me???
Of course I'll definitely pay you a little cash as a reward! I'll also pay for all the postage to and from you.

Please let me know if you are interested, please!!! I'm sick and tired of my 35ohm Parma!!!

Thanks a lot.

Hi

The professor himself at PM will do the mod for you...... he upgraded and converted both my sons and mine for me...... add the heatsinks while you are making the changes, then there is also the variable brake and pregressive power input - overall a great controller.......

his website :PM website...

a polarity switch is a very simple mod to do, its not going to be that hard to do if im right it is only 2 wires to solder to the switch, if you are that worried about doing it then just get some broken housegod appliance and practice slodering on the circuit board for that. anyway whats wrong with a 35 ohm parma
ive tried a prof motor and it werent that great, the parma on the right ohm setting i find id better

It is a little more complex than soldering two connections. You have to cut the circuit board in four places for the silver series(2 for the Plus series), solder 2 wires on the circuit board, solder the six connections on the switch and modify the trigger and solder the jumper wire.

I had 4 controllers that needed to have the reversing switch installed in and was preparing to do it myself and decided that I didn't want to risk screwing up these expensive controllers and ended up sending them to Andy at PM for a very reasonalble price to install. It wasn't the soldering but the cutting of the circuit board that concerned me.

Here is the link for the instructions from the PM website: http://www.professormotor.com/2036instructions.shtml

regards,
Michael

With directions like that, a capable solderer's cake-walk. Know anyone who solders well? The cuts are no big deal at all. If you want to send it far,(states) I'd do it for you at no charge. Good, relaxing little project on a Sunday for me. Also, let me know if you need anything welded, I do alot of that, too!


Cheers!
