Default LeRoi D201 Pump Engine

There is a Le Rol Engine mounted to a pump I found on some property I just bought. The pump I thought was a water pump on a trailer. On the pump body it has casted in some concrete company in London Ontario. Could it be a concrete pump?? This thing has patent stamps on it saying 1940 Did they even pump concrete in the 40's ??

That is a water pump, I think they call it a trash pump because it will pump dirty water. I have one built just like it only smaller mounted to a large wisconsin single cylinder engine.

I would like it to be a trash water pump as I have a 3 inch trash pump on a Briggs engine and it pumps like crazy and is easy to prime.
This one has about a 6 1/2 inch opening. The thing is not all covered with concrete residual so it makes mw think it isn't a concrete pump just made by a concrete pump company LOL Thanks

A cement pump doesn't use centrifugal force to pump cement, they use a piston which moves back and forth. We cleaned out a pond with my pump and it would pump muck, gravel, and water dogs. It will pump anything that will go through it.

allis chalmers made these for le roi and are basically W C engines. The le rois have different starters that i think are delco remy. I have three starters on my d 140 engines and none of them have tags and in all my literature i can find nothing for a starter number. Ed the le roi man

Thanks Guys for the info..... It appears I won't be needing that starter after all. I took all the shrouding off ectera and the block is cracked so much it bulge the side.

Side note the starter was held on with three bolts.

I'll post some pictures.

I'm now thinking of a transplant engine.

I will also post pictures of the bell housing adapter housing to see if you guys have any ideas.

Here are the pictures I promised.
The direction I'm heading is to find a newer engine that will bolt up to the bellhousing. ( re drill if I have to )
The flywheel drive setup looks like it is easily transfered to another flywheel. What are the chances that flywheel would bolt to another engine. ( slim to none )

I was surprised how the pump drive to flywheel drive was so simplistic.

Here is how I plan to connect the two. I cut the old flange off the D201 Machined the stub to 1 7/8 shaft size and had a keyway cut. I then purchased a coupler half to match the sureflex coupler that was on the new power plant, the old flywheel will bolt to the newly machined flange.
