No Mike, not the bushings. When the field coils were replaced, they didn't replace the giant screws and one of the magnet's didn't pull down completely leaving the very corner of the magnet sticking up. Armature was hitting the magnet. "Been there done that" before, I don't really mind doing wiring when I can see what I'm working on. Right now I'm trying to figure out how the instrument cluster is attached to the dash, any idea?
