I am try to help a friend out. His washer at the end of the spin cycle makes an unually loud thumping sound. I assume it is the brake. You can hand turn the drum and it thumps with each revolution. Any help would be appreciated.

Sounds like you have an unbalanced load. I know this sounds too easy but lots of times this is the issue. If it doesn't help then you could have a bearing issue where the belt goes around a pully under the tub itself. If so you will have to replace the pully itself and perhaps the belt if it's gotten worn too much.
My guess is that one of the three counterweights have separated from their support. Probably rusted away. 36 years is quite a feat. Today's machines would be lucky to 1/3 of that life. Sounds like its time to go shopping. Do you have an anniversary coming up? Ladies love washers for an anniversary gift.
It doesn't look like a motor problem !!! It seems like an unbalanced tub issue. The machin has suspension dampers and suspension rods, and it's look like one of them was damaged or "run away" from its location during machin's movement.
Goog luck !!
