LeRoi Orchard Sprayer circa. 1920's

Hello all, I bought this orchard sprayer a few months ago at an estate sale a few towns over from me and it had sat under a barn for a number of years. My plans come spring are to restore it. The engine is free and the wheels are as well (it's actually in fairly good shape!). I do not have a model number for it (the plate is behind a component of the engine and haven't been able to get to it quite yet). I wondered if anyone may have some information on this unit or may be able tell me anything about it? I know that I will most likely need to replace the barrel. The pump was made by the the Friend Pump Co. It is also a horse drawn unit not self propelled. I know that I am looking for a radiator cap. I hope that someone can help me out!

All I can tell you is that if the engine is original, it was likely built in the late 1930s. The engine isn't old enough to be from the 1920s. Looks like a nice project.

I have an old barrel that come off a Pontiac spray unit that's in descent shape if you are interested.

Could you send me some pictures of the barrel?

Thanks

I found out that the Sprayer was made by the Friend Manufacturing Company in Gasport, NY
