Hi folks, I was wondering if someone could help me out on the wiring of this crane. I have a couple of wires that are loose and would like to get up and running before I take it apart and repaint everything! Here are a couple of photos I have. If more are needed I will get them!!IMG_20200105_065920861IMG_20200105_064559209IMG_20200120_143624920IMG_20200120_144525611

Any help would be great!

The best wiring diagram was already provided to you:

I'm not sure you can rely upon the colors (your's appears to have been rewired at some point), but you can rely on the numbers/position.

Start by tracing from the bottom and comparing with the diagram previously provided:

Thanks you BMORAN4 for the information and picture!

Here is a new question, It looks like there is 22AWG in the crane now, my question is could I use 24AWG or even a pair of 24AWG for each connection? I am just trying to use what I have on hand. If not I will just have to buy new wire.

Thanks for any help you can give!

It's a short run, (probably not much more than a foot?) so I think #24 will be fine.

Mike, what you are looking for at the motor is #3 or#5 on the wiring diagram. Those are the two field coil wires and now of them is the culprit I'm pretty sure. I hope the wire isn't broken off where it comes out of the field coil too close to make a connection. I really want to see that old Crane working.
