The Westy is a 1912-13 model where you have to remove the stator to change the head wire unlike (sometimes) the later models that have a small port to get into.  There are pot metal parts (bearing carriers front and rear and neck, maybe a few other parts) that can be a problem.  Parts should be available some.  A good design but hard to work on.  If the oscillator linkage is worn or broken you'd need more parts.  Price seems high for that fan considering condition.

The 29666 was made only one year, 1922, before the 71666 replaced it.  The missing oiler would probably not be too hard to find, the osc. linkage I don't know if it would be hard to not so hard.  That one has a terrible "restoration" but looks like it would re-restore nicely.
