Has anyone ever removed the motor from a Lionel Century Club 726?

I removed the motor from mine to lube it, and I'm not sure that I have the two washers between the motor and frame in the right spot.

Currently they are on top of the round raised pad on each side near the front of the motor since that's where the one was laying when I removed the motor.  

The drivers turn without binding, and I just want to be sure that the washers are in the correct place to avoid wear to the worm wheel.  I'm used to working on postwar Berks and Turbines, but I've never dealt with shims like these.

Thanks,

Jim

Hello Jim, I know this is an old post, but I have a question, I have a new Century Club 726 Berkshire, I did the required oiling as stated in the manual but I want to inspect and apply new grease to the worm gear any tips on greasing the loco, Thank You, FRANK
