I'd be curious to know if your oscillator pivot screws are straight or a little bent? The one holding the pivot knuckle connection on mine was bent from the force of the direction change of that motor.

Actually my oscillation linkage is straight and intact. No problems there.  The only reason I mentioned duplicating the original pot metal pivot out of brass is to eliminate the potential risk of fracture and additional wear. I would of course keep the intact original pivot.  At present all mine needs is a speed coil rewind, new finish, and cords.
