Any progress?
Expert:  John Rife replied 6 months ago.

Replacement motor brushes will increase the power. This is usually straight forward and easy to replace. A spring is attached to the brush and on the other end is a square flat end that slides into the drill assembly with minimal tools. Be careful when taking the housing off and watch to see how the parts are connected to reassemble it with no issues. I always take a few photos just in case.
