Default US Oilwell Witte info?

I picked up this US Oilwell era Witte at a sale, just got it home to stat working on it. I've fooled with some Witte B's but not a lot, does anyone have info about identifying these, or where to get parts? I know Arrow bought them out, but I don't know much of the story beyond that.
Thanks
D. Ludwig

Flywheel diam. for a C is 32" a B is 25" what is yours? I cannot tell but I suppose it is a single flywheel? w/twin disc clutch. Parts could be difficult. I think arrow has pretty much quite with Witte stuff. David Johnson would know. That leaves oilfield bone yards. what do you need?

So far I need a disc for the clutch, the hub that bolts on the crank for the clutch, and a mixer/carb. The piston is currently stuck, so who knows what I will need before its all said and done.

Well sounds like you have a C model 6" bore x 8" stroke. You should be able to find the serial number under the crankcase cover on the block.
Not sure what to tell you about parts, if you can get in touch with David Johnson he could tell you what if anything Arrow might have and maybe give you some contacts of folks out his way that might have some used parts.

The sub base makes me think it's one of the engines they made after the C.

I think you are right Ed, I can't tell from the picture but I believe the newer ones had a clamped on flywheel also.

Pretty sure that's an American Bosch mag. That's a good thing.
