    I have a new drive motor for my electric recharge mower, but I am having problems with the electrical connections. My old motor just had the two connections, and the speed controller is separate, but the new motor looks like it has the speed controller built into it. I am not sure how to connect it up, as I don't know what the various wires do.

    There are 5 very thin wires coloured; yellow, black, blue, green and red, and 3 thicker wires coloured; yellow, green and blue.

    Does anyone know what the various wires do or any tests I could perform myself to find out? I was hoping these wires are a standard colour coding. The motor is 36v DC, and about 900w.

    can you post a pic of your new motor and the old one as a comparison?
