Thanks to both members who answered my questions and past posts on the Emerson 77648 fans, I was finally able to get this working. Besides a full disassembly and cleaning, fixing a dent in the bullet, and giving it a new color paint job (was that copper bronze color), it needed a new stator, wiring, and the oscillator adjustment knob and link. Changed the paint color and gave it a complementary color Corian base. Worth the effort as this is a tank and is balanced as if it was a high speed precision grinder! Crazy how much volume this thing pushes and is so quiet too. For 30 years I used this as a basement shop window exhaust fan and I decided I couldn't toss it after I (finally) installed a permanent thru the wall exhaust fan. Got this fan from my dad and happened to learn from a member that it was made just about when I was born ( was told this is a 1958 or 1959)....kind of neat. 

Had lots of fun and learned a bunch....perhaps the most important one being that that the fan folks are darn nice and helpful. Maybe I'll do another one someday!

I really like this color on the Emerson - the original brown hasn't carried itself outside of the 50s well. With the fine mesh guard and this color it's reminiscent of a Hunter or maybe one of the earlier Hitachi or Toshiba fans.

Thanks Gunner...a new color is likely a purist fan rebuilder no no move but I went light to make it a bit less imposing and frankly I didn't think I'd likely be able to do a good job replicating the past color using just Krylon or Rustoleum spray cans. Take care, Mike
