Default To get it to motor...

Checking my self here....

For my Western Electric light plant. I want to motor it over without the piston cylinder or switchboard on it.
I have 4 leads.

1. Series field
2. Gen positive
3. Field
4. Gen Neg

I think I connect Series field and Gen positive to positive battery
and Field and gen neg together to neg battery. to just turn it over as a electric motor.

I made new brushes for it, and the field does magnetize when hooking just that and the series up by themselves on the battery.

Sound about right??
