Good morning. I see youre looking for a replacement motor. grab the information off the data plate on the motor. You will need the Frame size, HP, Volts and RPM's. You should be able to get one from WW Granger or Johnstone Supply. If not there should be a motor shop somewhere near you who can order one for you. Let me know if I can be more assistance.

That has already been done. This is a special motor made for this beacon. It has along shaft with a worm gear on the end.

there is a company called genesis lamp that refurbishes these beacons. They can probably get you a motor. Their email address is***@******.***
