Question Humdinger

I recently came across a Fairbanks Morse "Z" engine with an attached, ger driven, diaphragm type water pump produced by a company called "Humdinger". I had never seen one of this type or heard of one before. Does anyone have one of these and if so, what could you tell me about it? The "Z" engine is missing too many parts to be worth fixing but another engine could be acquired if there is any value in the pump.

Default Re: Humdinger

Dick~ Unfortunately, I cannot put any light on the Humdinger but anything that has external moving parts to watch seems to be worth keeping.A fellow recently called me to see if I would take an orchard pump rather than him disposing of it for the scrap price.That made me think the same question that you pose right now.It is an Iron Age orchard pump outfit by the A.B. Farquhar Co York,Pa. I saw the 2 external pump pistons and thought somebody besides me might like to see a pre OSHA piston pump machine slowly rocking up and down at a show sometime.It is now under cover until I can find out some information on it. Ever hear of it? Good luck with your diaphram pump because they make a nice display and China doesn't need any more of our stuff. Mike
