It runs

 I finally have a 201 that runs.  I made the wire ring connectors tonight after supper and tried out the motor.  NICE.  The machine is dirty and I have hours of work to get it stitching.  I can't afford to sell this machine.  I have HOURS invested.  I have three of these machines... I pulled the motor off of the third.  It does not look hopeless.  The brushes are not soaked with oil but the motor was glued to the shaft from dried grease.  The handwheel came right off, though and the textolite gear looks ok.    So I think that this motor can be used on the better of the two remaining machines. 

Happy New Year.
