    Need yer help! This needs a motor. The field coil tests, "open". Stamped on it is Synchron 610 1 RPM 143RA and the wheel train is 2 and 1/4 by 3 and 1/4 with a 1 and 3/8" handshaft
    Wondering if Timesavers 20066 would work. It's wheel train frame is much larger and would require remount mod for spacing. Also wondering the probability of hands fitting as I don't wanna go thru that nightmare. If hands don't fit, what's the odds I could transfer their motor to my train.

    Scottie, are you looking for a new movement, or just the motor? Your timesavers number is for the movement. Part # 18404 should be the motor you need, if your movement is OK.
    You should be able to guage the movement's health by putting the motor back on without the mounting screws, and turning it to see if the wheels will turn freely without any binding. Add oil as needed.

    Yeah; Kinda thot 18404 looked like the replacement but so many have variations of drive teeth number, dia, etc. was seeking conf. I did think movement came with motor so again; Thanks for clar. Gotta knock out the rivets and dismantle but I believe movement will be able to support a fresh motor.
    Thanks HAROLD. VERY helpful + + + +
