Re: bachmann 32-975, freightliner class 66

it was the black lead on the side of the motor,resoldered,however,not completey fixed,if I run the wires from my 9 volt battery to the motor it spins,but if I put the battery directly to the wheels nothing

i hope im in the right topic area,i bought a Bachmann class 66,bachmann number 32-975,i bought it as a non runner,but hoping to get it going again,i have done the the 9volt battery test and sure enough,nothing,it is dc,all and I mean all wires are connected ,and none are broken,should I just send it...
