Default Pumping Iron

"Pumping Iron" Antique iron that is. The wife and I took a little road trip and picked up 2 Antique Goulds pumps. I have always like old piston pumps and have had quite a few

I like them, especially the one with the large gear! Do you have plans for them yet?

I have the small goulds apart and am restoring it . The large one looks pretty good needs a crack brarzed on the inlet fitting other wise quite nice for its age. Not sure what I will do with it may make a jack shaft with a gear and a pulley to run it or just put a pulley on it I may even sell it if the price is right

I'd love to see some pictures of them when you get done. I like the old piston pumps too, I just haven't run across any around here, every one I find is too far away.

If you find a pump you like but its far away Fastenal is pretty reasonable for shipping large items the smaller pumps can go fed ex. Not a lot of nice pumps come up for sale locally here i traveled a good distance to pic up the pumps from 2 locations

I have a 5 x 5 Goulds pump. I have not run it in a few years as it needs new valve springs. The last ones I put in I had to make. This pump was run with a 7 1/2hp Fairbanks Z.

That's how I shipped my burr mill, it surprised me how reasonable they were, considering the size of the thing. The people at my local Fastenal seemed the really enjoy loading the mill up, they were all interested in knowing what is did and what kind of machine it was.

I got the inverted Goulds up and running I cleaned out the mouse nest then a light sandblasting I had to make valves it had none and fabricate a plug for the primer .I always Like to test run before paint.

Here is a short video of my Empire running it

Just got the other goulds pump back together. The water inlets are mickey moused just for a test run I plan on having a self contained unit on a cart with a tub and spigot for a display. I converted it to belt drive from the original large gear

Here is a video of my Bulldog running it
