Here is you a small Eck motor from 1918.
Thought of you when I was looking at it. :D

Never saw a tag with so much info. Is it an AC or DC, I can't see on the tag.

From what I can see on the tag by the fact that the tag doesn't have a section listed "Cycles" on it anywhere on the tag but 110 listed under volts, and the fact that the motor is on a ship more than likely the motor is a 110 V DC motor, which to me anyways seems a little underpowered for a motor that size.

The USS Texas can be d amn glad it didn't have to face the guns in the turrets of this chunk of short lived iron. The Hood did.
