Fairbanks-Morse Pump Jack
Can Anyone give me any information on this “Pump Jack??”. [IMG]
When were these made?
What were they used for? (It seems to be to rugged to be used for just pumping water.)
Weight: 133 Lbs (Cast Iron).
Height: 17” with cover.
Width at base: 9”
Belt Drive Wheel diam: 15”, Belt face 2-3/4”
Accessory mounting area: 4” circular. Holes for 2 bolts/nuts
Fairbanks-Morse Chicago No. 6 D.W. Head (D.W.= Deep Well???) Serial No.:259925
It takes seven (7) complete turns of the drive wheel to complete one up-down stroke. Verticle stroke is 6” (straight up and down – no arc).
I contacted Fairbanks Morse, Chicago Office via their web site and they say they have no info on this item.
It was completely frozen (rust, dirt, etc.) when I acquired it. There was also a lot of nesting material in the case (mice?). It took several days and a lot of Liquid Wrench to loosen the first part. Once the first part was loose, I was able to disassemble the rest of the innards without too much trouble. The (original?) paint (what there was of it) looked like it was a deep grey-green. Couldn’t find anything like it in any store so I painted it an Army Olive Drab.
