See earlier posts in this subject.
Basically it involves removing the old deteriorating paper insulation and cracked insulation power leads to the coil.  It is delicate work soldering the tiny coil wires to new wires, glass electrical taping the new wires in place and then to secure everything putting a big piece of shrink tubing over the whole thing.

Thanks. That's what I gathered from the previous posts but I didn't see what to do with the old posts. This seems like a very solid design option.

If the old terminals are OK or just loose, you can always solder new wires to them, bend them down flat and encase the coil with heat shrink tubing. Bill's method of using glass tape AND tubing is a good one. You just have to be careful about adding too much outer size to the coil or the rotor won't bottom out correctly.
