My cousin gave me this running board mounted tire pump. No name or markings of any kind. I assume its period correct. I need to find correct hose and valve stem fitting. Any help would be great.
I also got a jack with the pump that I think will go on the TT project.
When you do get a hose and fitting on that pump and try it out you may decide it's for display only. I was surprised to find that a foot pump, less than $20, works very well.
I wire it to a plywood base to keep it upright on uneven or rocky ground.
Steve, question from another thread, do you have any trouble pumping a tire up to 60 PSI with that manual pump ? Where did you find it ?
When you get a hose and try, make sure there is a check valve in ether the outlet on the pump or the head that attaches to the valve stem. Some have a ball valve in the fitting where the hose connects to the pump. The valve in the stem is only a one way valve. It is ether open to fill or closed to keep air in.
Rich, that's why I was surprised at how well it works. When I fixed a flat on a trip last year I was able to get the tire up to 60 psi with it. It took longer than using the compressed air at home, but it wasn't a major ordeal. I had my doubts when Royce recommended a foot pump, but it does work.
I see the price has gone up a dollar since I bought mine a couple of years ago.
Wow !! That's mighty reasonable ! Thanks Steve !
I've found we tend to be overly dependent on power tools. Most "old fashioned" hand tools are very efficient - just takes a little "elbow grease".
In this case ankle knee grease!
After changing my clinchers on the side of the road I sit back and let the 12V pump do the work to get up the 60 psi.. It all fits inside my generator with the extra tube and patches.
It Depends on how hard you want to work...LOL
