I gave her $200. I just couldn't live with myself........anyway, it's all there, the tag is off and about 3 trusses came loose from the back of the cage, but it runs. Very happy.

I noticed it has a top oilier. Does that mean it takes some kind of grease as opposed to oil? Also, how do I re-attach the cage trusses where they've popped out from the back of the large part of the cage frame? They are basically broken off.

Can you imagine if I just gave her her asking price of $25 dollars? Again, I cannot bring myself to do that to folks......and she was floored when I gave her $200. She said that $$$ would go toward a house siding project.....we both win and I feel better! Good karma.....good practice.

Exactly right....good Karma. What goes around comes around. You did the right thing!

I'm guessing that maybe the the motor case is mounted upside down and that's the reason that the oiler is on the top rather than the bottom? Were the holes for the motor tag on the underside even though the picture shows the motor tag sitting on the top?

Make sure the two holes in the outside of the motor case are pointing upward then make sure the oil cup is screwed into the hold on the underside of the front of the motor.   There should be a small set screw that goes in the hole on top which keeps the bearing in place.  Oil cup and set screw are interchangeable physically but not functionally.   A quick and easy method to oil a pancake bearing is to remove the set screw, put some oil in the hole and button it up.   Good for a bit of running but a proper oil cup cleaning should be performed.   And it looks like you have the correct "older" style oil cup.  Looks like you have the two speed 1901 model.

I was thinking the same thing. Someone has reversed the oil cup with the top screw hole for the little set screw that typically goes there. It's a real gem. Worked on the the big 1904 I got the other day, almost done. Got the 1906 done. Will take some pics of both when I get a chance. Should have this little gem done over in a week or two. I'm do a very respective restoration on these fans as they retain a lot of the original paint on the motor shells. Had to repaint the bases but got the motor housings looking great with some serious elbow grease, Simple Green to remove the 100+ years of grunge off and then a good deal of polishing compound and some touch up paint. Polished the brass blades leaving some patina.

Now on the hunt for a nice 6 blade Emerson........

I have seen these with the motors turned upside down in the yoke - - because of the bearing? Or to get more oil from the cup?

  I don't think it is, as the two wire nuts are where they should be......?? I could be wrong. I'll see if I can just reverse the setup.

One question on the inside of the pancakes. I noticed very thin gaskets between the stator and the motor housing or what was left of them as they disintegrated when I took the motor apart. I'm assuming they helped insulate the stator from making contact with the metal motor housing? It's a tight fit and I'm not sure what would work in it's place. Would a thin coat of paint work just as well as long as no bare metal is exposed when I put the stator back in?

Yeah, I had just noticed the GE emblem also reversed, but I have cages that were put back on upside down & have left them that way! The 1899 model had a top Oiler

I just stuck it on for the pic. It was off the cage when she brought it.

You did good Don, H3LL of a score, for BOTH parties, and you can sleep good. She actually came out better than you, and you did great. Now just pass it over to poor ol' Rich for $400 and double yo' cash, give the girl another bill and you'll have sweet sweet dreams...
