I'm trying to fix an old (1929?) AC, 60 Hz fan motor. None of what I've found is this simple (or old). It needs the stator rewound. It has only 4 posts and I'm copying the orginal windings. I could not tell from the old winding if the poles alternate polarity. Physically, I'm winding them all clockwise but can alternate, if need be, by connecting adjacent coils head-to-head & tail-to-tail. Right hand rule would reverse the N-pole. I presume the 60 Hz house current provides the modulation to actually make the motor spin. I've attached a photo.
