[mowbot] Servo positioning

Can anyone tell me if servos are supposed to turn a full 180 degrees from a
1mS pulse to a 2mS pulse?

I got the encoder and decoder circuits working I showed you - the 100K pots
turn up to 9 servos, but they only turn about 45 degrees. Furthermore, they
turn very slowly for the first quarter turn, then turn very quickly for the
last 3/4 turn.

The servos I'm using are very inexpensive, Futaba S3003 's. Will they turn
a full 180 degrees if the pulses are correct?
