I decided that I would take apart the motor that was on my 66-18 "Godzilla" to give an overall inspection. It should not be that hard. Right? Well now it all apart. All the little parts are in labeled baggies. After looking at it's innards I realized that I just did not know what I was looking at and what I should be looking for. So I wimped out and called my brother in South Carolina and asked him if I sent him the motor could he check out the motor and reassemble it if it was in OK shape. Lucky for me he is an expert in that sort of thing. I figured that even with the shipping costs involved he would work cheaper (free!) than buying an original replacement even if that were possible.
I think I will stick with quilting and cleaning :oops:
