    If you don't know, then don't do. If you don't know and still do, then be prepared to pay someone else a lot to undo what you did and then do it right.

    If you do know, then do. But do it right. Otherwise, you may not be doing it long.

    Is it a DC motor? If it is, check your field connections. Might be hooked up differentially compounded by mistake.
