1939? Emerson Junior. Is that the serial # on the bottom? (28)

Looking at the cage style and the lower number being 28, it is probably a 1948(number+20 for production year) Junior. :)

The gearbox was in bad shape. The output shaft was bent, and the grease had hardened. It took almost 6 hours to repair and grease everything.







They don't make quality like this anymore.

The fan worked, but smoke could be seen coming out of the rear oiling hole.

The stator after removing all the burnt windings, and cleaning everything with a wire brush.









More cleaning to remove the old slot paper.









I marked the stator so I could keep the factory orientation.









New friction tape installed, and a piece of card stock inserted to get the size for the slots.









Here I used Nomex 410. I have seen others do it a little different. I might cut those flares off. I'm just waiting for the AWG 28, and 24 wire, and the coil winder now.

Awesome work so far! Glad you're rewinding the motor! That fan will go on at least another 70 years when you're done!

Here, the motor housing and armature is clean after about 7 hours of work.



















I also counted the turns by ten in each bundle. I'm glad I had this site for reference.
