Photo Jensen Oil Well Pump - photos

I have just finished this little Jensen oil well pump. I picked it up a month or so ago over in West Missouri. I would like to know some history of these little "guys"? Any one know any thing about them and where they were used?

I think they are cute and I'm going to run mine with a WMB Briggs with a little jack shaft to slow down the opperation.

Don: Nice Jensen pump jack. Sure would make a neat display. Just hook it up to a well cylinder and pump "BLUE" water. I knew someone who made some models of these(similar), but I could never get one . Lost contact with the person. OH WELL... Sure would like to find one back East that I could get my hands on.

Hi Don,
Your Jensen looks nice. They were made by Jensen in Coffeyville, Kansas, primarily for pumping water. Does yours have the tag on it? It will tell the recommended cycles per minute.

Marv H. recently sent me some data from a manual regarding the weights on a 13W:
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
1 wt would balance 35#

5 wts. would balance 170#

10 wts would balance a 300# load.

a 10' deep well at 40 psi would have a draw pull of 165#

a 380' well at 40 psi would have a pull of 300#

a 470' well with an open discharge would have a 300# load.

this is with a 7/16 rod, 1 3/8 cylinder, 1 1/2" pipe

you have to calculate the wt of the rods + the water wt. + the pressure.
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Marv's is the 13W-9 with a nine inch stroke, ours is the 13W with a seven inch stroke.

Attached is a picture of the clamp arrangement off of a slightly larger Jensen.

Rob;

Thanks so much for the information about the little Jensen. I was told they were used to pump oil in Northern Oklahoma because the oil was so shallow.

That's about all the information I need to know to set up and start pumping oil or water.

I haven't totally figured out the rod and clamps and cables but I guess when I get it set up to work I'll be able to figure that out.

Hi All,

I have a 13W Jensen Jack that I run with a Briggs WMB. I also have reprints of the Parts list amd the depths and Cyl. sizes for the 13W & the 19 W Jacks. The company is still in bussines in Coffeyville and are helpful regarding these Jacks. Talk to Charles Varner [Engineer] @ PH # 620 251 7222.

Also the first 2 numbers of the Serial # is the year that the pump was manufactured. Mr. Varner will send you copys of the sheets that I have as that is the way I got this info. Hope this helps. Dale

Hi,

I have a jensen pump that you mentioned. It is for high and low pressure water pumping. The paper work for this pump said to use either a 1/4 HP or 1/3 HP motor to operate the pumpjack. I use mine to operate a pitcherpump that I modified with a brass cylinder out of a windmill pump. I put a 10 inch flat belt pulley on it and run it with my 2 HP NOVO engine. It is on a cart by itself. I can send you a picture of it but do not know how to put one on this thread.I took a trip to Missiouri last fall and found one at the Ft Scott engine show which I did not buy but then found another one in Montrose Colroado and bought it.It makes a nice display.

Default Jensen pump ready to go to work.

Here is a picture of my newly finished Jensen pump ready for a cylinder and "plumbing" if decide to go that route.

I think I'll just put it on my Delco-Light trailer and run it with the 32 volt back geared motor motor you see attached to it here.

I for got to include the pump strokes per minute. With the back geared motor I'm getting six strokes a minute and looks like it would pump nicely if should decide to put a cylinder on it a move some kind of liquid.

Dick Brown:
I think I'm going to try the linseed oil and dryer on this motor. It looks like it should come out bery nice. I'll let you know how it works out.

That is a nice looking Jack Don, For anyone that doesn't know the Paint color for the Jensen Jack is A C Orange. This comes from Charlie Varner at the Jensen Manufacturing Co. Dale

Can't seem to post a picture but you can got to img7.photobucket.com/albums/V17/olengine/ and look for it there. Hard to teach an old dog new tricks.
