Leader Iron Works.

Months ago, reader Eugene Cook sent in a photocopy picture of his Leader Iron Works 4 hp engine and pump unit, along with a brief note. We lost track of Eugene’s letter and are just now running it, with an enhanced version of his photocopy. Our apologies, Eugene! 

Eugene writes: “It has been in our family since the mid-1930s when my father used it to pump water for our dairy cows from a hand-dug water source in the pasture during summer drought periods. With the help of my mechanic friend ‘Scottie’ the unit was put back in operation several years ago and mounted on an antique display wagon that Scottie found. The water barrel has been replaced with a large antique cast iron kettle we used on the farm to heat water when butchering pigs before World War II.
