Please excuse my lack of knowledge, but what is the armature? I can look into the slot where the brushes were and see that something does not look right, at least it doesn’t look the same when you look down each brush slot. I assume that this may be the armature.

An update: I just tried to smooth these brushes out and put them back in. They ran for about 20 seconds before both brushes broke apart and the motor died. Does this help figure anything out?
