I have removed the 300lb. pump assy. from a Bennett 966. It still has a bit if residual (and very old) fuel in it. What can I do with this? I'm thinking it's scrap metal. Do I have to take it further apart and remove any fuel in it first? Any other options?

Thanks folks!

I would dump the old fuel out into a bucket as good as you can then recycle the old fuel with your waste oil if you have any. I bring our pump guts to the scrap recycling plant. Scrap is not worth much right now.

That is what I do also. Make sure if you have any copper piping out of the pump to sell that separate to the salvage yard and also the electric motor. You can get 5-8 bucks for the electric motor and a couple bucks a pound for clean copper.

Or keep the motor if it runs to power a buffer/grinder.
I have one that a friend wired to run either direction hooked up to a 9" metal lathe. It gets warm after 3-4 hrs, hasn't quit after 10yrs of use.

There are some brass parts inside the pumping unit and
1 LB ea, pistons in the meter.
The big brass pistons from the meter make interesting paper weights, door stops, deadfall snare mousetraps, etc, etc.
You can always buff them w/ the buffer you make w/ the motor.

Good ideas, thanks! Not sure if the motor works or not but I figure I'll have to disassemble the whole thing to get the fuel out and scrap it. Who doesn't like taking stuff apart anyway?

Ok, I kept the motor - it was clean and does run. Took everything else to the scrapyard and got $15 for it and that included the nuts & bolts.

Does make you feel better knowing you're recycling too.
