Anyone know about a Klaxon windlass motor?

Hi Everyone,
Trying to diagnose the problem with my windlass motor, established I have power all the way to the brushes in the motor. I'm wondering if I have to replace it or, just the brushes or other aspects? Alternatively in there a replacement motor, that can be had?Click image for larger version

Hard to tell from the photo, but it appears that the motor armature commutator is very dirty. Cleaning it with sandpaper / replacing the brushes may do the trick. How are the bearings?

You might take it to an auto electric (starter) shop, for evaluation, and likely repair.
