time to start the repairs again.. first id like to ask if anyone knows where to get a replacement motor for the L5 westinghouse i have or should i have the motor rewound? what is the better way to go? and second its time to work on the WO-65 frigidaire. she blew out her bellows. i have the parts i need but i cant seem to get the loop bolt under the agitator cap off. it has been soaking with penitrant for days but wont budge. should i just cut it off and re tap an new bolt?

I'd take the motor to a rewind shop, not only would you have the benefit of the original parts, but depending on where you take it, it'd probably be cheaper. I've found a couple shops in the area that do old electric table fans as a sideline to their more industrial work.

The loop/bolt stem won't budge? Did you try heating it up with a blow dryer or very hot water?
