Comments:
This motor came with my Sears-Dunlap 103.0207 table saw, purchased at a garage sale in the 1990s. It works well. When I got it, there was no cover over the electrical connections. The wire on one binding post was loose, and the resulting heat had cooked the phenolic board on which the binding posts are mounted. I moved that wire to a second binding post that is electrically parallel to the cooked one, then cut a sheet aluminum cover for the wiring.

The press-fit oil plugs are difficult to remove for oiling; I ended up drilling and tapping them so I could put a screw in each plug to pull it out. Once pulled, I determined that the felt in the oil reservoirs was good, filled them with oil, and used a soft hammer to re-seat the plugs. From now on, I'll use the screw holes in the oil plugs for oiling.
