i tried searching but got nearly no results.

I am trying to find info on this motor that was mounted to the seat.

the motor gets power, its grounded, but the motor does not move.
i looked but could not find any stamped numbers, or a brand, not even a plaque.

i was hoping i could get a replacement without having to buy a full power seat kit, i cant seem to find any info on this motor.

That looks like an original power seat motor. ..... http://chevy.oldcarmanualproject.com/bulletins/55fsn140161.html
The black and yellow wires operate the motor by putting one on + and the other on - and they are reversed to change direction. Ring terminal should always be on negative ground. When connected to power, does it draw current (spark when touching power). If so, the screw may be bound up or the bearings gummed up in the motor. If it doesn't draw current, the brushes may be not making contact. ...... http://chevy.oldcarmanualproject.com/1929_57chevyparts/57cmpc0812.htm

it does draw current.
i attached a electrical tester to the ground wire, supply it with power, whenever i flip the switch for it, the tester lights up, but the motor does not move.

should i try lubricating the bearings?
has anyone ever taken one apart and fixed it?

Haven't taken a seat motor apart, but it looks like a heater blower motor with a different shaft. I have drilled a small hole in the end of the end bell so I could squirt the rear bearing with WD-40 and then lubricate it. See if you can get WD40 in the drive end of the motor shaft.

If you are needing another power seat motor, I might have one. If you decide to get rid of the motor with bracket, I sure could use a bracket to complete mine. You can email me a 57chevyman@q.com.
Good Luck and Thanks

I'm going to revive this ancient thread and ask if anyone has a source for a power seat motor (other than buying a complete kit)? The motor just crapped out on the kit I purchased from Classic Industries. I've emailed them for assistance, but that's a wait and see. I know this kit is built slightly different than the original parts, or at least they look quite different, but I can probably make another motor work as long as all the parts are there to start with. Thanks!
