One guy wanted bread pans. He dumped everything out of them and gave it all to me. There are a few starter and generator block-off plates, some brass valve stems and covers, and a jumble of other small stuff. I hope I can sort it all out this winter and find out what all I brought home. But the best deal may have been the shelf full of stuff I bought for $1.
That included this non-Ford tire pump. With some cleaning and paint, a new hose, and maybe a new leather, it will be good to go.
What has me almost giddy with delight is that the pump has a check valve. That's something that's often missing from these old pumps.
Nice score . I wish we had more auctions around here. Is the pump tube brass?
Nope. Steel. It's in great shape. No dings or dents at all.
Steve, ... you got this all wrong. Costco sells plastic foot pumps for $29 (for the two-pak).
All this old stuff is inefficient and icky. Please, make a note of it.
I went to a small farm sale yesterday and everything went cheap!! I was running my mouth and missed a nice set of tanks,cart,regs,and torch for 200.00 I would have gave them to my oldest grandson but i m,issed out!! I did get a small power bandsaw needing a switch for 35.00 though.Just fair a 1566 slightly over 5000.00 a sharp/show 806 gas slightly over 5,000,300 utility with loader 1300 460 with loader and backhoe under 2,000.A td 9 dozer running on good iron 600.00 and a very old but good shape 202 hydra-unit excavator for 3300.00 Bud in Wheeler,Mi.
Be_Zero_Be, are you looking for a single brass tube Ford tire pump?
Burger, please take careful note. I have two of those Chinese foot operated tire pumps. They are actually nice, mostly steel, a bit flimsy, but mostly built well enough. They were inexpensive, and I thought they might be handy under the seat of a couple antique cars. I only have a couple decent old pumps in usable condition, and usually neglected to grab one when I went for a drive. So what could be better than having a tire pump to just keep in the car?
Then one day, I tried to use one.
No check valves.
Brand new tire pumps.
They don't work very well without check valves.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
Was this the one in Anthony?
All I brung home lately was this toilet seat warmer
I have one - I was just curious about Steve's.
I wonder if there is a modern source for those hose barb fittings with the built-in check valve?
Jerry, no, this one was in OKC. I didn't know there was one in Anthony.
Sounds like far too much work to inflate a tire. I just take the very neat compact 12v tire pump out of my Ferrari and carry it with me on tours. Seems the only time a tire goes flat is when its nearly 100 degrees. I prefer to clip the terminals from my my electric pump to the small battery and wella a short time later my tire is at 60 pounds and ready to roll.
There are lots of inexpensive small electric pumps at parts stores that work as well.
Back before I had a compressor, my brother and I learned that it takes a long time to pump up a tractor tire by hand, even a small one like the 9 X 24's on our neighbor's little Avery. I'm glad that we didn't have to build much pressure in the tire.
