What if I have a speed coil for an earlier 1906 104v WH Tank and a stator of the later 100-110v tank? Will the higher voltage stator overtax the speed coil? Or will it be okay? Maybe just not a huge difference seen in the speeds?

You may not have much ofa low, but should not have any other issues.

Here's an update. Just like with the last time, I had some issues with noise. I had to do some maneuvering of the washers to prevent the female switch from grinding into the two solder contacts on the male end. With this however, in getting the correct amount of washers on the rotor (3 in front, 1 in back), the end bell can't be tightened down without causing it's own problem. When the bell was tightened down it makes a knocking sound and puts drag on the rotor.

As of now, I've gotten the noise down considerably, but it's because I took the end acorn nuts and hand tightened them carefully. My question is, does this sound normal? I cant tell if there's something improper, or if it's simply the sound of the shaft on the bearings. Am I being too obsessive?

From what I can tell the fan sounds normal in the second video. The motor will sound a lot different without the blade and I think that vides sounds much like a Westy Utility Motor I had from that period.

That's good to hear. I hope some other tank owners will chime in with their motor experience.
