I can't find the illustrations that I wanted to use and after the week I've had, I just don't have the energy to create them right now, so let me say this.
With two correctly running pancake motors and good adhesion to the rails, the two motors act as one motor. The armatures are connected to each other through the gears and rails because the gears are all rotating exactly like the armature. It's that simple. It's the same as connecting two motor's output shafts together with tubing. As long as one isn't vastly more powerful than the other, their horsepower and torque is additive, period. If one motor runs poorly, it's the same as a single motor with a partial internal failure and the result is the same; a poorly running train.
With worm gear drives, running more than one engine is likely causing damage to both engines. The gear system changes the direction of rotation causing extreme stress on the worm drive. That's it in a nutshell.
That's about all of the explanation that I can muster up today.
My mind just blew out, but this makes sense.
Should have ordered a few more pancakers from 'Cuda!
umpdan31: I get it now. If the black Hills of South Dakota has a white crow, is his name Blackie? (Nothing racial intended. I'm talking about a bird. When I was young, we had a black Cocker Spaniel named Blackie.)

wks: Nothing racial here. The singer Clint Black is white and the singer Barry White was black. Just names.

JNXT 7707: We're into the 'heat wave'. This stuff will take your breath away.

mph: Jerry, we got a bad trade. It was only supposed to be 4 days of 100+ with one day having a high of 108. They took the 108 away but extended the 100+ days to at least 8.

JNXT 7707: Geez. Well, it is what it is I suppose, summer in TX. I was saying once you get past a certain temp, it was just , but I take that back. This is some serious heat.

TK Dave: This heat is my kinda weather!

JNXT 7707: C'mon down, TK! We'll set you outside in the morning, I'd say around 7:00 pm the meat will be falling off the bone with a nice crispy crust on the outside.

TK Dave: Been there, done that, while riding around on a bicycle all day in San Antonio.
