Mark Bacon, 81 State St., Groveton, New Hampshire 03582 sent the photo at right, saying, 'This is my homemade pumping unit. The engine is a Briggs and Stratton. It was off a reel type lawn mower. The two big pulleys are from a Maytag dryer. Half inch bolts hold the pulleys to the frame. There is a quarter bolt on the second pulley, and this bolt lifts the pump handle. The spring pulls the handle back down. A dishpan holds the water for the pump. The suction pipe is about six inches long. This unit is so simple it works in both directions.'
