Wurlitzer Direct Drive Gear Standards
By Terry Hathaway

To finish up a writing and study project about "Wurlitzer Direct Drive
Gear Standards," I need accurate width, depth, and height measurements
for two types of fully enclosed gear standards (which is the gear unit
with the crankshaft that operates the pumps).  They are easy to
identify, as follows:

1. Early "Heavy Gear Standard," fully enclosed, with (1) no nameplate,
(2) a small hole at top center of the cast iron gear cover for oiling,
and (3) brass oil cups on each crankshaft bearing, Unit stands about
9-3/8" high.  (These are similar to the later "Heavy Gear" units with
a nameplate and no brass oil cups.)

2. "Worm Gear Standard," fully enclosed, with a nameplate showing Type
SA-1B (or if the wrong "Heavy Gear" nameplate was used, SA 200-HG-1B.
The unit stands about 7-1/4" high.

If you can help please send the footprint of the base casting (width
and depth), plus the overall height of the unit to the top of the gear
cover (with all dimensions accurate to 1/8").  Please send information
to [delete ".geentroep to

Thank you for any information you may provide.
