This is a picture of a pump rig I finished last year. The engine was a real basket case and both it and the pump took a lot of work to restore. It is a 4 HP Simplicity, and the pump is a Meyers Bulldozer.

I fabricated the trucks starting with two pair of IHC binder wheels. The engine runs really well on propane gas and pulls the pump at just the right speed.

At shows I pump water continuously from a large tub, making a neat display that is interesting to watch. Thanks to Skip Landis for horse-trading the engine to me, Lee Hulvey in Virginia for supplying the pump, and Jim Walker, Laurinburg, North Carolina, for lending me parts from his Simplicity to use as patterns. I have another Simplicity also, an older 2 HP that I wrote about in the April 1987 GEM.
