I thought it was the coupling, but I carefully removed the camera from the motor while this was going on and the motor continued to run at this slow speed. I've had this problem with it on and off for years, I've sent it to Paul at Visual Products multiple times and he's never been able to reproduce the problem, says the camera works fine. I've spent a lot of money just shipping this thing to Visual Products just to get told there's nothing wrong with it. This problem of the motor just slowing to a crawl happens all the time. I took it out for a shoot today and it got through 150 feet of film before this started happening and I couldn't get it to right itself. 
 
Any advice would help a great deal.

Man, the way you videograph it is no wonder something can go wrong!

 

Put that camera on a tripod, give the thing some light, focus correctly, and then show. I hate to watch such shaky, unsharp, and dark videos.

 

To be more constructive: Did you compare how they power the motor and how you do it?

my best guess would be the power source, even if it is working with other devices. Find another way to power the camera and test that.
