Is the motor driven by a simple resistor/cap arrangement? You may want to check them if it does. The resistor usually goes first.

Yes it is , i have not yet checked them , but will now ..

The motor does work , just that it is noisy and seems to suffer from cogging ..

If it's cogging the capacitor has probably failed.

I replaced the motor in my AR XB turntable in 2006. I purchased it directly from Hurst. It is an A series motor #3001-001. In 2006 the cost was $47.00 This is the OEM motor for the later model AR turntables. If I remember correctly the motor came with a starting capacitor.
