Question Stainz troubleshooting

I just bought a well worn Stainz 0-4-0 and went to test it. Using a Bachman 3amp variable power supply, the voltage goes up, the amps stay at zero.
I even hooked up the power by a set of test leads to the skates. No joy.
I've used this power supply on LGB locos in the past and there was no problem.

If I remember my basic electricity, zero amps means that the motor is not getting connected to the power.

So, before I tear down the loco, are there any tips and tricks.
And any tear down advice? I should be able to find a parts diagram somewhere on the net.

Thanks in advance
WES
