Parting out an old Tuthill Super C8, primarily because no one seems to want to buy it whole but also because the motors wouldn't run and other issues. I tried the 'toothpick through the sight window" trick to encourage movement of the motor rotor but to no avail. One turned for a while but then stopped, the other wouldn't run but wanted to.
Upon disassembling the base and removing the motors and the covers I plugged each separately into 120v and of course, they both rotate. They are both date stamped 11-79. Upon closer inspection I also see "220v 50 CY" which I would think means the motor was made for 220v and 50 cycles, which of course they weren't getting with 120v (likely, probably a bit more or less) and 60 cycles.
What am I misunderstanding?
