I have one as well although it is in very rough shape and missing the pump. I have seen a few around here and there.

Does anyone have a picture of the other side of the engine I am curtious about the pump drive linkage as I was thinking of doing something like this with one of my boiler transfer pumps. I figure the linkage has to be similar to a drag saw linkage.
