I have this motor but don't know what it is, nothing is written on it. It swings a 7x6 prop is 1.5 inches across and 2.5 inches long. I would also like to know how much it is worth in order to sell it as I don't need it. I have added some more pics. Hope thiis helps

Looks like a Mabuchi 550 to me but thats my best guess. Must be from the late 80's or early 90's. I would think if you got an offer for $15.00, that would be ok.

Looks a bit smaller than that to me but then there is nothing in the picture to provide scale. We also can't see the brush assembly which makes it harder to identify.

A day without sunshine is like ...night.

My suggestion is to ditch it if the motor looks and sounds like it's about to give up the ghost. Otherwise, take wht you can at a swap meet -- you might get $5. Can motors are like cans of soup, use and toss.
