Here is the link to Supplement 16 that covers this engine.  Starts on page 14.  Looks like a mechanical e Unit so troubleshooting it should be straight forward.

Follow the advice of David and see if the jumper is correct. Make sure the e unit is cycling.  If so check the fingers and the drum on the e unit.  Make sure they are clean and intact.

looks like  i need a replacement for mechanical e unit. when I put the plug in forward only .It works fine. When I switch the jumper it runs when given alot of voltage. then it seems to bind up and stops John

Something doesn’t seem right, an e unit will not cause the drive mechanism to bind up.....here’s one tip with these 90’s model CSS’s Mohawks, T1’s and the Texas Mohawk. .....Lionel greased these things  with a grease that’s known to dry up over time and literally turn to rocks......might want to take the gear box cover off and look around....it may need to be cleaned out & re-greased.....

I'm thinking something else. If I remember there was a problem with the backlash and the armature would bind against the brushplate in one direction. Check to see if the armature is rubbing the brushplate. Some spacer washers will take care of the problem if so.

Might can be that Chuck, ...ought to be easy for the OP to spot with out taking the motor apart yet, .....he should see the brushes tryin to jump up out the wells like bulging eye balls......no??...
