Default 59 A-B powered water pump

Sitting in a restaurant having breakfast a couple of Sundays ago and overheard two guys talking. The only part I paid attention to was " I gotta sell that flathead. Probably Craigslist". I asked what he had for a flathead and he said that it was all set up in a stand and it powered a water pump at the old paper mill in Westbrook, ME. Then it followed me home.

Motor & bedding in test stand all in one lick. Not a bad score.

Im not sure yet. I have a few 8BA motors.... I can change the pumps or make an adapter to mount them in it and see if they will run. I got alot of projects before winter so I think Im going to wait till spring to fill it with coolant. Postpone the bad news....... if there is any....... Mark
