I have a vintage 1960's Elna Model 62 Super.  
I want to know if it is possible to fix it.  The previous owner said that the motor just stopped working.  When I got it home, I noticed a lot of oil had leaked out of the machine into the case.  

Soooo, anybody know anything about servicing the motor to this machine?

thanks

The oil hasn't leaked out of the machine  -  45 years of oil
has accumulated in the bottom  -  clean it up.
If the machine turns-by-hand  OK  -  not jammed  -
I would first check the cord and cord connectors
and foot switch.  The 1960s power cords tend to  
become fragile after 45 years
 You will need a multi-meter and some electrical  <safety>
knowledge / experience.
If you do some google searches  and/or join the  
 Elna Heirloom Yahoo Group   you can get advice, Manuals,  
 schematics, etc.

Good luck  -  these are decent machines and are
usually worth the time & effort to resurect.
