I didn't see the link - can't help you there.
As long as the motor has brushes, then it can operate either as a motor or generator with no modification at all.  That's a simplification, it's true, because it ignores the practicalities of what power source will drive it as a generator, the diode needed to prevent the generator from acting like a motor when it isn't being driven, the appropriate speed, and so on.  But very basically there's no more to it.
No one believes the theory except the one who developed it.  Everyone believes the experiment except the one who ran it.

Hello,
Welcome back.
These threads are never "closed" on this forum, so yeah, pick up where you left off if you like.

How are these hobby projects going so far?
