Re: G-5500 rotor

Oops...  Missed where you said you moved it with the wires attached.

Check to make sure none pulled loose at the rotor.  Does the indicator move 
off zero if you turn the rotor?  If not, a loose or broken wire is almost 
certainly the culprit.  You're not getting any position feedback voltage 
from the rotor, so it'll stay on zero...
