Steve and I went to Syracuse just after the first of this year to fetch a Kenmore 158.1760. While there we picked up this 201:
I knew enough, then, to be able to identify this as a 201. I did not know enough to leave it behind. The wiring is a mess. Originally I thought that someone had tried to fix a crack in the body because of the goopy stuff running down the pillar onto the serial number plate. Later I learned that this was liquified wire insulation.
Here you can see that the wires are bare. The insulation succumbed to over oiling. It liquified and seeped out of the motor onto the machine. I am pretty lucky. This looks bad but I believe that I can repair it. I am following another blog ( http://vssmb.blogspot.com/ ) and Rain is posting a series of tutorials on how to re-wire this very motor
So I wait for the next tutorial. I did clean the armature today, though
