power agitated sick of the hand crank

I currently have a 550 seal master hand agitation tank. It already has the gear and chain reduction on the the tank. I'm sick of turning this darn thing and want to add a Honda motor and a gear to turn everything for me. I have no clue how to make this work proper gear ratio what size motor I would need, if I would have to change the current gear and chain that is on the tank right now??? Any advice possible step by step instructions would be greatly appreciated.

I have the same problem right now but I have a 275 gallon hand crank tank. I asked a couple mechanics and with my setup they said I could just go to the hardware store and buy a 12 volt motor and hook up a pulley system some how and it would work just fine. How that works I have no clue and on the hunt to find out. Chime in if you figure something out.
