your pause is too long, if you are trying to operate RC servos. Shorten the
pause to about 20 ms. and place the code in a continuous loop

' {$STAMP BS2}
' {$PBASIC 2.5}

DEBUG "PRGM RUNNING"

counter   VAR   Word

loop:

  PULSOUT 13, 850
  PULSOUT 12, 650

  PAUSE 20

    goto loop

END

  I am trying to write in BasicStamp and have this to make the motors run a
short time.

  ' {$STAMP BS2}
  ' {$PBASIC 2.5}

  DEBUG "PRGM RUNNING"

  counter   VAR   Word

  FOR counter = 1 TO 10

    PULSOUT 13, 850
    PULSOUT 12, 650
    PAUSE 200

  NEXT

  END

  Both motors make 10 short bursts.
  But if I shorten the pause to 20, they keep on running.

  Clues?  Hints?
