After taking the doors off this I have a couple of questions. Can a pump this old be restored to a fully functioning unit? Is it worth while to do so? It has all the internals and the drive belt is still intact. I don't know if it will turn but since it had diesel in it I figure it is still lubricated. The computer probably needs work but it did reset with the crank handle. The reason I was thinking about making it functional would be to restore it to a diesel brand then set it up for use on the farm for the tractor. Tank would be above ground but it could be hidden from view then plumbed to the pump. Anybody else make theirs funtional?

If you decide to do so, there is a place in Cartersville that can rebuild the meter to work correctly, they can also get parts for the pumping unit, or rebuild it too.
I can rebuild them too, but I have no testing equipment.

If you use an above ground tank, the air eliminator line needs to be plugged.

I sold a Bowser pump a few years ago to a guy who is using it to fill his bi-plane.
