Default Essex mixer

I am looking for an Essex mixer. This is the straight through style with no intake valve, similar to what was used on the Sparta built Economy's. Were these built in various sizes, and what other engines were they used on?
thanks,
Kevin

It was only on the earlier built Sparta's that used the Essex mixer. Most of the Sparta's that you see use the Lunkenhiemer mixer. I think most of the Leader engines used Essex mixer. I'm sure there are many more, but i can't think of anymore at the moment. Dave

Going to try this again.
Does any one have any info on these mixers, is any one making reproductions? or have prints or a pattern to have one cast?
I need a 3/4" or 1" NPT.
Thanks,
Kevin

Going to try this one more time.
A while back someone had a reproduction listed on e-bay. I had his contact information, but have lost it.
Any one know who this might have been. When I contacted him he was reproducing 3/4" and 1" and said he thought he would have a few extra available.
I haven't had much luck with finding an original, but the project is getting close and I need something.
Thanks,
Kevin
