    Hi -
    Here's a pic of the broken run motor wick. Soooooo close yet so far.

    A quick update on this thread - pun intended. I changed the oil wick going to the run motor bearing. Hope it works...

    I used 30g 100% Cotton Thread - natural color.

    It looks like you did a good job, Scott. The 30 Wt. Cotton Thread should work fine.
    Now you can get down to the worry-free fun of making some music.

    Thanks for the reply however I"m not quite there yet.

    There are several notes not sounding specific drawbars and I've yet to figure out how to fix that.

    Which notes, on which drawbars? (this is probably a really easy fix)
    Current organs: AV, BC, A-100
    Current Leslies: 22H, 142, 147, 760
    Organs in the past: L-100 (several), M-100 (x2), T-100, E-100, CV

    Probably just broken wire connections at the tone generator from movement, etc. I fixed several missing tones on my M3 following this chart, very easy to do on an M3 as access to the top of the TG is very good:
