Hi from what I have understood bt the term parallel you have coupled the shafts of the two motors .......understand that no matter how closely the two motors resemble (looks and specification wise) the two motors will have slightly different speeds so coupling the two motors together is not the way around....use a gearbox instead.........thats the sensible thing to do.....
