I wanted to start by thanking every member of this forum and every AFCA member. All your sharing and information has created another addict.
I am in a battle with a Westinghouse 803008 that I received literally as a pile of parts. I am at the tail end of the restoration and I am missing the wrap count for the speed switch/coil. The tape was removed from the coil and the wires looked like they were either cut or sparked. I am leaning towards sparked. I counted the wraps as close as possible but the numbers were only 0<>9<>18 approximately with 32 AWG. After rebuilding it is not visibly effecting the speed of the fan. So I figure that wraps were missing so my count was off. 

So I figured I would ask if anyone has rewound one, and if they have the count(or the resistance between the coils and I will calculate) before I start guesstimating. I'm trying not to build a heater.

There is a metal tag on the speed controller with the number 653441 on it.

Any help would be appreciated and thank you to the community.
