Default 3rd Windmill Project

I know I have not finished my 2nd windmill project, but I thought I would start thinking about my 3rd. Iím not even sure it is possible yet. I have had this motor for several years & not sure it even works. But thought I would give it a try. The plan is to take it apart & see if I can get it working again. The only thing I know about it is, it is a Westinghouse & weighs maybe 150-200 pounds. Please let me know if you guys have any knowledge about this motor & if it is even worthwhile diving into it. Here are the pics.

I don't think that thing can be repaired... at least by the time you've repaired it you've replaced like 90% of the internal parts...

The insulation on the windings is most likely eroded
