you just have to find a donor that has the pigtail in the right spot. find a shop that rebuilds automotive electrical.... they might even have something that drops right in.

post a pic of the old one
Might not be a bad idea. You looking for a pic of the brushes, I assume? There is no pigtail to note, just the brush/spring setup and the "housing" it slips into is hard-wired. I'll try to post something up this afternoon. Waiting on a plumber who is supposed to be here in 10 minutes. ( )

This might be the best bet. Sort of embarrassed I hadn't thought of it. There is a great little place a couple minutes away, stores been there for 70+ years. Love going in to poke around.
