Default Need to TEST 36V motor, how do I do this with car batteries?

I have a taylor dunn b210.
It is 36V,
I want to hook three car batteries up to it to TEST the motor, not to drive on it.
I want to make sure the motor and wiring works before I go spending $700 on batteries.
thanks
Kevin

Here is a low voltage motor test.

Excellent info. I too wanted to test a couple motors, so that helps me as well. Thanks.

Follow the drawing but use only one 12V battery; this is plenty for a test.

yeah, that was my plan. I have to test one that is mounted to a ford 8" rear end, sitting loose in my yard, so I'm just carrying a 12v automotive battery over to it, and hooking some jumper cables up to see if it turns. If it does, I'll be quite happy.

Darn, looks like the motor attached to the ford 8" is no good. I might have to pull it apart and check it out.

T/D used GE motors with aluminum windings in some of their fields so check continuity of the field first. The aluminum would de-bond from the brass motor posts.

Nate,

On this motor I was testing, I am showing continuity across A1 and A2.

mgcarma, if you have a digital multi-meter, set it to the "diode" setting in the "Ohm" section on the meter, and put one probe on A1 and one probe on A2, etc.. We share the same name by the way. I'm Kevin too.

Nate, any idea what this motor is? http://www.sonicperfection.com/whatisthismotor/

I need to replace the insulators for A1 post, so it can't short to the chassis of the motor, but it may not be worth messing with at all anyway. This is the one that shows a dead short between A1 and A2 when I tested it earlier.
