    Rick1505.
    At the very least a photo of your damaged Sessions clock motor is needed.

    The Sessions electric clock motors went through an evolutionary period and finally settled on a very reliable and inexpensively made unit motor assembly with the field winding deeply imbedded in the field pole assembly.
    The motor assembly is found with various schemes for securing the motor assembly to the clock gear train, the simplest a three "knob" twist-into-place mount used on lots of United and Master Crafters novelty clocks among others.

    I cannot imagine a practical way to remove and replace the field winding in the most common Sessions clock motor. The motor field assembly manufacturing method is not ameniable to disassembly. It is put together on a punch press

    I'd suggest searching for a donor motor from a discarded clock having an identical mounting method.
