You should be able to figure out what connects to what with visual inspection and a meter that measures continuity. Most of the old motors went through some kind of resistance device, a long coil of wire on a ceramic tube, for instance, as a way of controlling voltage. You may want to submit the question to the Electrola group., electr...@yahoogroups.com but don't wait too long. Yahoo is abandoning these mailing list type groups.

No one here knows about these Columbia electric motors? I would be shocked if that were true! On Oct 25, 2019, at 5:35 PM, Robert Wright via Phono-L <email@example.com> wrote: > Hello, all! Got a question on behalf of a lovely couple I get this weekend regarding a big, beautiful Columbia Grafonola. I was going to find them a crank for it, since they thought that's what was missing, but upon further inspection, it's got the same situation as in the attached ad. Pretty cool, and super clean as well. > > Problem is: how do you connect this motor to an outlet? No cable included (that's the easy part), couple of loose wires, not sure what does what... I only know Victor induction motors! Anyone have a schematic for getting this thing wired up back to original spec?
