Updated through online information from Charles E. Potter. -- In the 1976 Brandt rebuild the original large double rise reservoir and 3 attached feeder bellows were removed and replaced with 2 new curtain valve reservoirs for the Swell and Great. The original feeders still had a handle that projected through the side of the case for hand pumping. The feeders could also be driven by a water motor from below the organ. An electric blower had been added many years before and the feeders were no longer in use. The 1976 work included cleaning and replacement of the leather nuts on the tracker action.
