Dave, just for S&G's I grabbed one of the old motors from my micro Cub, and popped the brush holder off. As you stated they do have a pair of flat metal arms(?) and there is a black type material coated to the end that runs against the armature.

Might be a carbon coating of some type. I have a new Champ coming, I'll give it a water break in and report back to you on it.

If I remember to do so, I'll take amp readings before and after and see if it makes a difference.
