Default Antique Well Pumps

Does anyone know of any sources of information on old well pumps? Are there any websites or clubs? I see old pumps displayed at shows, but websearches have turned up little more than a few odd pictures.

Thanks for any help.

I've seen the occassional old well pump catalog up for sale on ebay. I've aquired a 1930 Myers pump catalog and a Hardie catalog from this source but of course they only have info on the pumps sold by Myers & Hardie, but there might be other catalogs available from time to time. I'm also looking for info on an old cast iron piston pump with no identifying markings other than casting numbers for which I have no info. Unfortunately the serial number or id plate is missing. A posting some time ago with a description and casting numbers for this pump did not bring any response to date so I guess info is relatively hard to come by.

I forgot to mention that I had my daughter scan pictures of this unidentified pump. If anyone is interested in seeing them or think they might have info that might be of use please email me and I will try to forward the pictures. (I'm basically computer illiterate or I would have posted the pictures myself). Thanks for any assistance.

Yes, information seems to be hard to come by. It doesn't help that there are so many different manufacturers. I keep seeing new names appear on E-bay, that I have never heard of.

Thanks for your reply, and good luck on finding the info that you need.

You missed Hardie Mfg. Co. of Hudson, Mich. & Portland, Ore. A fellow I know from the engine hobby has a model SCDA s/n 5825 rescued from a landfill. He has it belted up to a 1 1/2 - 2 1/2 HP IHC LB engine and pumps water around at shows.

I have seen a pumpjack for sale on Harry's ads that had the David Bradley (SEARS) name on it. Also, I saw one at a show that had been converted into a can crusher. The name was Blue ----. I can't remember the last part of the name.

Hi Tom,

I have a page with scans from a couple of F. E. Myers Pumps catalogs. One from 1920 and one from 1928. Just follow the link below.

Take care.
