That`s interesting Marv, hard to find literature on some of the old stuff.
Been searching for days trying to find something about the agitator motor with no luck, i found one advertizing picture that showed the innards of one that used poppet valves.

Thanks everyone.  :)
Ron-(steam toys) sold me a water motor, thanks Ron and Gil for giving me a heads up.
It came today so we went to work on it, the leather cups were dried out and a couple other catches but we got it going and mounted it on a washing machine we built.

Lenn: Nice Video the Water Motor looks like it was meant to
be on your Washer. Sure looks better than sitting on my shelf.
If I should which I doubt come across another one should I
keep you in mind?  steamtoy  (Ron)
