My dad and I finally finished my "dream" pump. It is a Wayne 491 "Roman" Air Operated Pump. The column was almost perfect and of course since it is air operated there was no handle or hole for the handle. The original tag was still there saying it was a 491. I want to thank Rick for selling me the pump. I had been looking for one for a long time and it is finally finished. My wife who normally cares nothing about my gas & oil hobby, liked it so much it got to go in our foyer. Jeff

Now that's a nice restoration. Someone spent a lot of detail time to finish it so well.
I am missing the handle, an inspection plate at the base as well as the globe holder piece (cast top is just a chimney).
Was your pump complete or did you have to look for parts? Do they reproduce any of the pieces I mentioned? Are the rods on yours painted or actually brass? What about the "feet"?...is this something you added to protect the floor?
Thanks for your help!
Don

Thanks for all of the nice comments.

Don, My pump was pretty complete, but I did have to buy a few pieces. Ron Scobie has parts for the Wayne 491/492 pumps and my experience with him was great. He knows a lot about the Wayne 491/492 pumps and went out of his way to help me with info and the pieces I needed. The rods are brass and and came from Ron. I added the rubber feet to protect the hardwoods. I picked them up at the local Ace Hardware and ran bolts up through the bottom with the brass rounded nuts on top of the base. It worked great. Just a suggestion as this is what I did, I would put the pump together in the location I wanted to display it, as it is very heavy with all of the cast iron pieces. Jeff
