I recently acquired a Leader Iron Works pump unit at a farm sale. The base of the engine is all that is left of the original power source, as shown. There was an old electric motor bolted to the top, driving the gear wheels. The words, "MFD By Leader Iron Works. Decatur ILL. Owega NY. 4525," appear on the cast iron base at the pump end. Any help identifying this engine would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. Daniel Ebersol, 1931-A Mine Road, Paradise, PA 17562; (610) 593-1173.
