Thanks all,
I thought that a 2 pole motor would have two magnets on the rotor, with 2 sets of North and 2 sets of south poles. This thing only has one magnet on the rotor. The rotor is integrated. I wonder if it got magnetized wrong at the factory. I took readings with a multi-meter, but then pulled it apart. All of them were stable and there did not seem to be a short to the stator housing. I am going to rewind it anyway, just to increase the kV a bit and if there was a hi-pot short that I couldn't detect, then hopefully I can remedy that.

Jack, that is the correct motor. The motor is (was) capable of moving, but severely stuttered, and sometimes would not get started at all, unless you gave it a bit of a kick.

Thanks again.

Curtis
