Default Aermotor 602 8" windmill / Flint & Walling Star 37 windmill

i ve been elected to restore at least two old windmills. The aeromotor 602 has only the head assy without the tailstock, vane assy or the fan & hub. ....... lol.
The star is of unknown size... it is all there but for the sail assy. and hub. anyone have any helpful id methods for the size of the star?
also theres an almost complete mill, i believe it is a sears/ roebuck......
also looking for the necessassary parts to get them back online... preferrably without having my customer mortgage his house...... lol. Bill

I have several windmills for sale. buying a complete one is cheaper and easier them hunting for parts for several years!

I have a windmill on my property. I am unable to climb up high enough to see any marks on the top but it looks like it may be an open gear type. There is a Flint and Walling pump under it, #'s C5781, B674, B76 are on the pump. The long handle has #18 on it. The tower is about 28-30 feet tall. The pump has a faucet on it. I also have a Deep well pump, (Duro Mfg. Co. Dayton, Ohio) with a 1/4 hp motor by (Sunshine Elect'l Mfg. Warren, Ohio). Are these items of interest to collector's, and what might the value be? I am located in Northern Indiana. Bill

J.K. It is a Flint and Walling model 37 star zephyr with a 7 foot rotor went and picked it up this morning from a guy in Riley IN. kinda southwest of Terre Haute In. No tower though but that should not be a problem lots of towers around with no airmotors on them. Randy
