It's near impossible to see what wire goes where.Double-check again, and make sure all the fingers are in contact with the drum.

Ok i wil i do notice as soon as i put power to it it starts running it doesnt do its normal clicking. Year i new the pic wasnt the best. Ill probably have to take my other one apart and compare. For it to directly run it has to be one wire or two. Kust cant see it. Thankyou. Also wodering if you would know if i can use a lionel 3 rail track on the post war american flyer o gauge it 1938 my brother in law gave it to me it runs i just replaced the pilot wheels and rear trail wheels and axles thanks
