I have an Emerson Electric  74646 AL sitting in my basement and its time to either restore it or trash it. It used to work but it is in need of wiring repair as well as cosmetic







. The power cord has dry-rotted and the fabric covered wires are frayed and disconnected. I'm looking for information on rewiring this model. I have Googled but to no avail. I know its a big ask for a fan noob so any direction is appreciated.

Just draw diagrams, take pictures, etc., then put new wire in the same way. It's not old enough to worry about antique cloth covered wire. Commonly available hardware store stuff should be fine.

I had that same fan that someone from church gave me, except mine I had to put a new switch knob on because the original one had broken off years ago. 
mine was from 1955, and it was a two tone brown color, and I replaced the original cord on mine because like yours the cord on mine was dry-rotted as well.

I ended up selling mine for a tidy sum of $50 to a friend of mine who uses it in her garage which doubles as a recreational room in the summer time for her sons and her husband.
