Hello,

I was wondering if I could get some help on identifying this pump or the bastardized version of what it used to be. It's got almost all of the guts, came from a VA farm and was used to pump diesel. Looks like they removed the sight glass internal piping. The chrome data plate says model 96 with a serial number but looking at the handle and its weathering, I would say the data plate is not original. What's your take on what model pump this is?

Thanks in advance.

Mark

More pics, also the black on the face plates looks like the face plates from another pump or original?

During the life of these pumps many parts were interchanged as repair efforts were focused solely on making the unit functional. I believe the 996 has two stainless strips, one above and one below the window face. The hose outlet cover is definitely for a 994 and not a 996. The 96 model had an internal, face mounted, site glass and a much lower house outlet and I think were tall pumps but I could be wrong about the height. Can't explain the ID so I'm voting that its a 994.

Looks like 96B sides and top that has been cut to fit on the 996. Richard

Yeah, looking at pics of both pumps, it looks like 996 doors and 96B sides. Can you tell anything from the pics inside, lol, even though they aren't the best. The one pic is the light assembly up top. I'm interested in which model it may have been originally.
