I want to find out why my Lionel 736 engine wheels weren't turning. I have dismantled the 736 engine and the wheels turn by hand easily now. The electric motor worm gear also turns when I grab it with a pair of pliers. I want to bench-test the electric motor but I am not sure how to do it. I have removed it from the frame and attached test wires/clips connected to a transformer but nothing happens. Any suggestions would be appreciated - my electric motor knowledge is very limited.
