Do You have the Agitator offset from the Center of the Pot? How large of a Diameter Agitator are You running with that setp?
I had been Running my Drill with a 2 Blade Propeller made from Wood. I'm guessing the Diameter waas too great for the Old Drill.
It's fine until the motor runs for more than an Hour.

I run the agitator in the center of my masher, dia. of the agitator is about eight inches and blades are made from 2" ss flatbar if I remember correctly, I welded a piece of 1/4 in round bar that is formed in a circular shape and put it at the lowest point. I did this because I do BIAB and wanted to offer the bag some protection from the paddles. I can take a pic of it when I get home if you want...

There are a pile of triclamp agitator motors on ebay right now.

$350 or best offer...for the real thing.

You'd have to have air available.

Pint, it looks like I never thanked you for the help. Sorry about that. I'll be ordering parts later today and you've saved me a lot of stress. It's much appreciated.
