    Not so far. After cleaning, cleaning and more cleaning I have been successful removing the excess oil and grease. However, until I get these cords remade, I won't know if I have ruined it or not. I still haven't quite figured out how to re-do the connections in the main power cord.

    Did you mark the wires when you pulled them?

    Yes. I marked the lamp vs. motor and all. I didn't mark things like the right or left side of cord ends but those are interchangeable right?

    Yes! We are up and running! I got the cords done and tested it out and it's looking good!

    I am not sure why I keep getting these machines that have cords and terminals saturated in oil and grease but, I seem to have found a system that works and thank goodness the parts were salvageable. Now to shine her up real purdy and put some thread in the needle. Happy dance!

    Basically yes, if you're experiencing problems, then the problems are there. regardless.

    Be glad you have cords and wiring. The machines I got from the Amish guy have severed cords. They have a plug to the machine and a 1 inch tail. Some don't have mates on line as far as I can tell. The more rare the cord the more likely someone severed it... He may not have done it - they may have been that way when he got them who knows.
