Removing the stop with a dremmel tool
Keith Rowell Design

Instead of trying to find the original factory setting, I decided to remove the mechanical stop entirely. This was very easy with a dremmel tool. I don't think the remaining position sensor (pot) can get "un-set" because it keeps telling the servo to turn until x is reached.

The good news is that "un-dammaged" motors can do the whole 180degrees with no trouble. I will do more testing to ensure that the expanded pulse width isn't doing any damage to the circuitry.
