    Re: Old Pump

    Hand pump with a pump jack attachment. (the pump jack most like was ran by a one lung farm engine), there would have been arms off the large gears that would run the pump rod, the handle would be disconnected when the pump jack was used,

    the hand pump head is still made by Baker industries

    this type of pump head was used on deep wells, as the pump part is at the bottom of the well, called a Cylinder, and a rod runs from the cylinder to the pump head, where it is attached to the handle.

      Very cool indeed. With the flywheel spinning these are not that hard to pump.
