Default Hi from New Zealand

Hi there, I come from Invercargill New Zealand, I was cleaning out my dads old dairy factory and came across a Meyers bulldozer pump No3890 quite large with 4 inch intakes. Is there any information any members have on this pump. I would love to get this old beast up and running.
Cheers Hamish.

Welcome to the Stak Hamish. Sorry I can't tell you anything about your pump, but given some time someone will most likely come up with some info. Good luck with it.

gday hamish rang the old chap and unfortunatly the books he used for i.ds e.t.c belonged to an old steam guy who passed on a few years ago.....told him your pump was quite large 4 1/2 " but he said he had never dealt with anything that big.... he suggested you try in at e. hayes & sons as norman {now passed as well } used to have books on myers pumps so probaly one of the hayes boys might know of them...as you probaly know norman would help any one and was very clever with his home built engine and restoring of the "fastest indian"..... anyway i hope they can shed some light for you....... worth a look at all normans bikes and everything for a visit anyway........cheers
