Hi all, 

I am currently restoring an M45 Quadmount anti-aircraft gun and having some issues with the motor. 

The 12v 100amp motor has just been reconditioned and works really well with no load, no smoke or anything.

When the motor is under load with the gearboxes and pulleys attached the motor begins to smoke after about 30 seconds pulling around 9.5v during operation. It has just been reconditioned so not expecting it to get so hot so quickly. I will be calling the people who fixed the motor on Monday, but wanted to see if anyone else has had experience with this issue or can help.

Here is a link to a video showing the mount in operation and subsequent smoking motor.
