Fixed the real wheel assembly last night (principally, loose spokes). Reinstalled the wheel, brake, chain, etc. and test drove. Worked fine for a minute. I stopped, and when I next turned the throttle, no power at all. Checked/replaced fuse, to no avail. Have examined to see if any wires disconnected or damaged as a result of earlier repair operation or wheel rub, but find no evidence of any such problems. Help.

Best solution to a wheel that's wobbling all over the place because it's missing spokes: Replace the wheel. Why? Straightening a wheel that's messed up because it's missing a few spokes is a difficult art.
Next best solution: Bring the wheel to a bike shop and ask them to replace the missing spokes and true the wheel. Why? See above.
If you insist on having a whack at it, you can remove the wheel by loosening the axle nuts and slipping the wheel out of the frame. You may need to remove a brake pad to get the tire past the brake assembly. Then take the wheel to your friendly neighborhood bike shop and ask them to remove the freewheel assembly from the hub (it requires a special tool that you don't have). Buy some spokes and nipples while you're at the shop. Be very nice to the bike shop people because they'll likely be the folks you'll come back to when you decide you need a new wheel. Once you have the spokes in and the wheel is straight (good luck with that), you can replace the gear cluster without the tool the shop used to take it off, since the freewheel doesn't freewheel in the direction you turn it to put it back on. Good luck!
Forget new guide wheels. A new rear derailer is the real fix. You will need to order a new one by the number of gears on the rear gear cluster. How the derailer is mounted, Which way it moves when by the spring direction etc... By the way, get a higher quality one than the one you have got. If you go megawheel on the lower guide wheel; which I recommend, you might need a couple more segments in your chain. Yes, you need a new chain. If you wore out a part on you derailer, your chain is getting old. I recently bought a new rear derailure for my wife's bike for 29 bucks at a much better quality than the old one. It does not have problems of getting between gears, clicking etc... like the old one did new.
