 Good Afternoon all,

I am fairly new to collecting and restoring fans.  I attended the Fan Fair in Indy a couple of years ago and was impressed with the depth of knowledge and friendship. 

I started this fan a good while back, but a much improved health issued interrupted and there were periods I could not work on the fan, so my memory faded on some of the details.  The victim is a R & M 24004. 

I took it apart, stripped and painted it (still working on paint application improvement) and am now reassembling it.  I thought I took good notes and plenty of pics but I am missing a detail.  Beginners syndrome on knowing what is important.

It is a 3 speed fan with a wound choke and a capacitor.  When I tested it at the beginning, it did run on 3 speeds.  Now I find my notes and pics to be lacking on the details of the original wiring layout.  The picture shows these items.  A diagram of this fans wiring would be most helpful.

Thanks for any help.

I restored a very similar fan last year, a RM23004. Here is a rough schematic. I replaced the capacitor too. If you need to order a capacitor I can send you a link, about $4.00 plus shipping.  Disregard the motor ohms at the top of the drawing  the ones at the bottom are accurate. Best regards Malcolm MacGregor

Thank you Malcom.  I was "this close" as Maxwell Smart says, but did not wish to burn up a good runner with a guess.
