Hello all

A friend of mine in Spain finally acquired a Columbia BY, but the motor has been switched out. I am trying to find the correct motor for the machine. THe motor, as well as some pics of the machine, are below. All help is gratefully appreciated.

I was trying to find the exact same motor recently. I have one additional
question . . . does anyone know the direction each of the 4 springs are
supposed to go to operate properly? Generally double springs wind in opposite
directions to each other.

Thx

There has been a motor frame casting and a few gears for one of these re-listed several times lately on eBay. Don't currently see a listing for it however.

All 4 springs install the same direction. See photo.
