Took all winter to do it, but finally got the Wayne #275 done. It's one of the earliest with no clock face. Mostly all original except for hose and decals. Now, how do I move it?
You could always start a new display area, right where its at!!
Looks fantastic. Lots of young men and beer!
Looks great! Paint looks great.
1 young man & Beer or 2 old ladies w/ Wine or 3 Old Farts on Viagra!
Beautiful job!!! That deep red looks fantastic with the brass!!!
awesome job, ready for the museum...
Top notch restoration for a difficult pump to restore.
I saw this as it was in pieces and being painted and it had the "wow" factor before it was done. Seeing it here all complete is a "double wow"!! Great job Sam!
looks great just bought 2 of these-- any insider tips--to take off the sliding skirt
do you start tearing apart from the top first
NO, Lay pump down & remove the Base, then the sheet metal.
Always wanted to do one of those. Looks incredible
I went the way of DB's input. Laid it down & started with the bottom base. BUT, be careful to take pics & the steps in your dis-assembly.These are a real pain when going back together. When the bottom parts are restored (big round tubes sticking up through center casting, & you're re-assembling, then the skirt goes on from the top down, followed by gear mechanism rack, top with pulley/chains, etc. Hope this helps.Fun when they're done!
awesome job SAM!!!! What a great finish on it..sure like it a lot
When they were assembled NEW at factory, they were done like any other pump from Base UP, new threads, nuts, etc., BUT w/rust & extra paint over the years, there is just no way to start dis-assembly from top w/o a Large Hammer.
Wow, an awesome restoration; looks great!!
Looks awesome Sam. Great job. Thanks for selling me the base. I have nightmares about reassembling mine.
No reason for nightmares! Just load up the parts, drive 600 miles from Mass. to western Pa., and I'll coach YOU how to put it together. Then you simply load it up and return home! Sam
