There is a neat Stewart tire pump on e-bay. Anyone know how it was mounted. ?? The seller says it is missing the speedometer gear, but that could not be how it works. You would have to be driving for it to pump. I lean toward a flat belt pulley like a water pump and somehow get power from the fan belt . ?? but I really have no clue. Would make a neat addition to the speedster project if it is somehow appropriate for a late 20s era. Thanks ... Donnie Brown ...
It's gear driven.
Do some Googling and you'll understand how it works:
In the ads, it doesn't appear to be marketed to Ford owners.
Erik, Thanks for the link to all the ads. It does look like it was meant for the big car market. But it could not be a "fit all" type of thing. There must have been different gears and brackets for all the different makes of cars. There really is no easy spot to mount a gear on a T. I guess the speedster project may have to do with out it. Thanks again ....
See this link on the forum where someone Rube Goldberged it on a water pump. I don't think this would work well since the water pump is belt driven.
Also - look at the Benn ad that shows a combination lower pulley/gear.
There were similar ones made for Model T's that used the fan belt to supply power.
Erik, Thanks again. It appears that there were models or gears that worked on a Ford T. The best way would be like the Benn model with a front crank pulley with a gear attached. I may still need it Not really very useful, but really neat ..
