Or you can do away with the micro switch thing and use the normal TOC.

Yes. Only the TOC is different but that is just swapped from the old motor.

True but then I've never come across anyone that has used it anyway  :))

Its wicked, it halves the voltage of the motor! ;D
DC14s are tanks, just need a slightly longer motor life. Do plastic parts often break on DC14s? Nope. DC41- Sexy looking futuristic and powerful machine. Just needs a better designed cleaner head wheel and cyclone clip along with a dense metal rod in the chassis.

To be fair, if anyone was ever going to use it, it was going to be you   :biglaugh:

Hehe thanks! At least if it does turn out to be a pile of toss I can say I tried,  and bave an opinion if anyone ever asks me about it again!

You should be alright :) My DC05 motorhead looked a bit complex cos it was already taken apart with the previous owner, but managed to get it working optimally by guessing how the wires go, that's old Dyson's for ya! they are too easy;D
