Photo Dexter model 70 G

I have a Dexter model 70G washing machine with no engine. The guy I got it from said it originally had a Briggs FH on it but doesn't look like it will fit. Anyone know what would have been on this machine? Thanks in advance for any help on this.

Default Re: Dexter model 70 G

I looked on Lee Maxwell's website and found a washer almost identical. According to the website it was made in 1937. And by the washer design that sounds right. I would say it was gas powered for sure according to the instructions on the tag. My guess as far as engine would be Briggs and Stratton Y or possibly L. The bracket under the tub appears to me to be the bracket that would mount the choke cable. And there looks like small holes in the frame that would hold the fuel tank down. Nice original washer!

Well after talking to some knowlagable folks I'm certain the Dexter had a Briggs model L engine on it originally. I had an engine so I went through it and got it running, engine bolted right up washer runs and works great.
