I still haven't found a serial or any clear way to ID it. Getting ready to dose the cylinder with tranny fluid and diesel and see if she will free up. The flywheel is pinched on with a bolt, the clutch side has a clamped on flange that the Rockford style flywheel bolts to...which is broke. I'll post some detailed pictures tomorrow if possible.

After looking at the catalog, I think...key word is think...it is an E20RC.

Question Re: US Oilwell Witte info?

Loosen the conn rod bolts about half way and that will give you some bump to get the piston moving. Use the flywheel.

Greetings -
We are missing the Simplex Pumping Jack and the connecting arm piece that straddles the well (see attached drawing).
Do you know where we could obtain one?


I am donating my Dad's Oil Well to be used as a display at our Restored Village: South Side Historical Village, near Pittsburgh, PA.
