As the title says. I'm saving this one from the smelter. I've repaired a fair share of piston pumps but this ones going to be interesting if I decide to rebuild it.

Yup it's huge, the Craftsman mower is an LT3000 parked within 2' of the pump. The pump is missing the 2 drive rods and has a stud broken off of the packing gland but the gear box works and having worked on piston pumps I'm sure it's fixable. Really not looking for a project but I think this ones worth saving unless someone can't live without it.

If you're interested, I have one that I was going to restore myself, but have lost interest. It sits in pieces but you are more than welcome to it.
Only thing is you'd have to come pick it up. The tank on mine is different in that it sits upright compared to yours. It needs a new shaft and bearings. I started to repair it by machining a brass(or bronze) piece for the crankshaft and need to machine it down more so connecting rod fits it better.
I wanted to fix it up to draw water at my uncles cabin.
