I am hot wiring a 12666, 3 conductor headwire - - so far I get a hum. Don't have my meter to test - - should I just keep switching the 2 power leads til I get the right combo? And can any harm be done by powering up the wrong ones? (Using a VARIAC at 105 volts per motor tag)



how it started 10 years ago . . .

Steven,
If you need any help or advice, I am close to half way done with mine!
My second six pole big motor Emerson resto.

























And just so nobody thinks I'm evil for restoring this fan, here is the bubbled and flaking Japan. Not sure what got on there at some point, but it ruined the paint. 



Had a broken switch when purchased as well, but you can see my restored switch near the top.

As far as the motor goes, I'd set the variac to 80V,  then try combos of 2x1 hotwired. One should do nothing, except buzz. One should start the rotor clockwise, and the last should start it counter clockwise.

Edit: make sure you put some assembly lube on the rotor so it isn't physically stuck in place!

A stator from a 12666, 14666, 16666, 17666, 19666, 21666, and 24666 should work on your 16666!
Rewinds are just so expensive! I know it'll provide a little more reliability. But, an original stator with a properly done soldered headwire and revarnishing would likely last just as long.
On an Emerson, the only part I've experienced trouble with is the hollow drive shaft having grooves from being ran without oil. I keep a couple of big motors on hand just in case, but no spare stators(except a 29668 stator as a backup for the 27666 resto which has the 29668 switch in it).
Will keep an eye out for a spare stator you may need..big 6 pole for the 6-wingers. Big 4 pole for the 16" 4-wingers.
