Hi Kev, Ahhh, long time since i last seen a 209 or 219 obviosuly a little confused. if there is no soleniod brake it will be inside the motor.like the 215 model. it will be a cone brake with a rubber lining unlike a 225 model. do have drawings and pcb circuit diagrams archived away, again cant remember how may wires this motor has. if just 3 wires, assume it has the ruber brake cone. stripping down cleaning the spline and a bit of emery paper to the motor cone in the cowl will help, just dont lubricate 🙂 i do remember having to remove centrifugakl switches on the 215 to get to the brake which is a 3 wire motor. motors are AC, but solenoid brakes are DC to prevent them being turned into a buzzer. the 230 model had a solenoid brake and the rectifier is on the board as it is on a Bison Classic AC. if you had a Brooks Deluxe, the brake is wired into the motor connection point, this is where you would find the rectifier. good luck, those old GSL’s were great.
