We have a Gold Medal Popcorn popper that we bought at an auction. My husband cleaned it up and we tried it out, but aren't sure how much oil and popcorn kernels to put in. We can't find a model number, but there is a number on the side of the blue top piece - #43987 and there is a number on the kettle #49326. It is a 6 oz popper and has a 2 arm kettle holder. Any idea what the model number would be so we can find a manuel for it?

Re: Need model number for Gold Medal popper
AMOUNT OF POPCORN AND OIL Your new popper is equipped with a six ounce [177 ml] corn measure cup. We recommend flavored and colored coconut oil. Popcorn popped in coconut oil stays fresh longer. Coconut oil does not leave black deposits in your kettle like other oils. Corn charge - 6 oz. [177 ml] Oil charge - 1.6 to 2.0 oz. [60 ml] Flavacol - 1 tablespoon [8 cc] POPPING INSTRUCTIONS 1. Turn KETTLE HEAT and KETTLE MOTOR switch "ON". 2. Make test pop with 3 kernels of corn and 1 oz. [30 ml] of oil. 3. Pour pre-measured popcorn and oil pouch into kettle. 4. When corn has popped, dump kettle. 5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 for additional batches; always pop 3-5 batches for best popcorn.

Any Gold Medal dealer will be able to find one. There are 3 different styles depending on the age of the popper.
It is always cheaper to repair Gold Medal kettles, replacements are very expensive. That model they run $750-$1100.

Your question has more questions than answers. You choose a Gold Medal 2408 Popcorn popper as your model, but it does not have a 60ktyz motor, the stir rod and shaft are separate from the motor, and you can't get parts for it on ebay.
I hate to put this as a solution because it really isn't. I have an old popper needing a new kettle and was told it was almost as much to purchase a new kettle than the whole machine. The kettle is almost the entire cost of the unit. I will be purchasing a new unit.
I'm not sure if this will be helpful or not...
The 2086 in the picture looks like the Ultra P-60 with the copper finish (Part #1866 at http://www.gmpopcorn.com)
You can get some manuals & schematics at the Jarco website:
http://www.concessionstands.com/s.nl/it.A/id.307/.f (The machine is listed there under part #2086, by the way; is this where it came from?)
Anyway, hope this info is of some use.
