Oh, it's brittle alright. Don't know why they're jumpered. Maybe that's how it was done back then.

I hooked it up and it ran for a good minute before the relay tripped it off. Waited a minute or two and it ran again, this time only for 30 seconds.

I took a reading between the motor terminal and the common terminal, (pic below) and on the multimeter setting for 150VAC I get 125volts and 0.8kohms. So that tells me I'm pulling only 0.15amps? Doesn't sound right to me.
