    OK, it’s a Wico FW (Fly Wheel) 837B? I can’t find any listing for that particular model so you are going to have to see if there isn’t a part number stamped on the condenser itself somewhere.

    Most, but not all, FW mags used a condenser (capacitor) with a rating of .16 – .20 uF.

    I’m trying to identify what year this motor was made.
    Hopefully the earlier posted picture of the tank helps.
    It is a single cylinder.
    Stamped on the power head is: S53582
    Thanks for any ideas.

    The number you gave is the serial number. If it’s a single cylinder, water cooled motor,
    you probably have the 1940 model 571.40

    Disconnect the wie & use a meter to see what you get. Even if it is leaky it should function
