The Howard Johnson motor works. Period. Most folks don't believe it, but it is the truth nevertheless. But it will definitely run down and deplete the magnets made of alnico or ceramic. It's not that complicated.

But it may go against your reasoning on how you have experimented with magnets in the past. Just follow along and I will try to show you how the design works. First lets think of the 3 individual arc magnets as stator magnets and the track as rotor magnets. Which is opposite from what the drawing represents. Think of these stator arcs as magnetic ramps. Notice in the photo above that I have shown the bloch wall in each arc magnet. The arc magnets are magnetized thru their length. Also notice the small arrows above the rotor track which may give you a better idea how the design is working. Finally notice the white square I have place in the rotor track magnets. Remember, instead of moving the arc magnets, lets move the rotor track to the right. When a rotor track magnet meets the arc stator magnet it is repelled. But the magnet with the white square in fig-1 and the magnet in front of it are being ramped. Once past the initial repel zone, the magnet with the white square is being pushed with repel from strong to weak to the bloch wall. Then it is now being attracted to the other end of the arc magnet using weak to strong because of the attracting poles. So in effect each rotor track magnet gets to ramp the whole length of the arc magnet once it gets past the initial repel. The magnet to the right or in front of the magnet with the white square is already in strong attraction. Now notice what happens in fig-2. The magnet with the white square is at the center of the bloch wall, but it is still attracted to the right end of the arc magnet. The rotor track magnet to the right or ahead of the magnet with the white square is attempting to leave the arc magnet. The rotor track magnet behind the magnet with the white square has just been pulled thru the initial repel zone and is now helping to push the group ahead out of the field of the arc magnet. In Fig-3 the rotor track magnet with the white square is about to try and leave the attraction from the arc magnet. It has help from the magnet behind it pushing the group. There are 3 stator arc magnets. You then place them around a rotor magnet wheel at about 120 degrees apart. As shown in the drawing, the arc magnets are staggered so that they never line up in the same position with the rotor magnets. Two arc magnets are always pushing or pulling the rotor magnet track insuring a repel magnet gets thru the 3rd arc magnets initial repel zone. One can also slightly tilt up the repel end of the arc magnets to make it easier for the rotor track magnets to enter (or get past) the initial repel of the ramps or arc. You can actually raise the arc up high enough and the rotor track will tend to get attracted in from the repel side and repel out the attraction side!! This is because the spin images are combining to form a slingshot effect. But it makes the arc ramp effect too weak for any useful work. The distance between the arc stator magnets and the track rotor magnets needs to be adjustable in order to find the run position. I have made magnetic tracks using Howard Johson gates. They work very well, but I see them more as magnetic ramps. It would be interesting to have some anisotropic arc magnets made from neodymium and see if the magnets would hold up in a magnet engine.
