I call it the “lunar lander”. Briggs WMB. The gearbox on this thing resembles an auto transmission of the day. Took it apart and cleaned it, the gears are the size of those in my 1950 Farmall A tractor trans. At the time American industry was transitioning from war production to peacetime, so they made washing machines like they made machine guns. Wash my blue jeans at my off grid cabin.

Wow, looks to be in beautiful shape. Would love to see a video of it doing a load. I also have a WMB, but sadly not the washer.

Put some blue on it and refer to it as R2D2. Man that thing is a monster!
