  • Tire pump??

    I was given this tire pump today, my son-in-law was told it is a Model A pump but I don't think it is, maybe Model T. It's a Bridgeport No6, brass and works still.

    I have a two piston pump and a three piston hand pump, which I bought several years ago.
    I just assumed they both were aftermarket hardware store items.

      Tom, In a search this is all I came across:

      T"here was a series of articles in "The Model T Times" (Nov-Dec 2006, Jan-Feb 2007 and Mar-April 2007) by Mark Eyre with Dave Renner and Vern Campbell, that seems to summarize what is known re tire pumps. The "take home lesson" appears to be that the Bridgeport Brass dual cylinder (Aeolus and perhaps Improved Aeolus) was used from 1909-1920, and the single cylinder with Ford script was used from 1920-1925 or 1927. In the final article in Mar-April 2007 the change orders and diagrams are included. The first two articles indicated different inclusive dates for the dual and Ford scripted single pumps, and indicated dates of 1926-27 for a single, non-scripted pump with a pressed steel base. The final article concludes that the non-scripted pressed steel base pump is actually for the MODEL A. There is no definitive answer regarding the dates of brass tube scripted vs the steel tube scripted pumps, the brass tube single with Bridgeport Brass and Ford on the underside of the base, or the those with and without the T-1434 on the underside of the base. Ford tools remain an area of confusion."

          I is that the current JS description?(I have to buy a copy)
          it does NOT have a cloth covered hose
          You can see the texture of the fabric under the rubber coating
          we tried to differentiate between a smooth hose and a textured hose
          but there is no cloth coving

          The down stroke pushes air from the large cylinder over to the small cylinder, where it is further compressed on the upstroke and enters the hose at the top. It operates on the same principle as a two stage electric air compressor.

            That's right, there were no mutli cylinder pumps that came with the Model A or even the T.

              Hand Tire Pump help.
              by Bobm90
              I have searched my books and manuals and couldn't find the answer to this question about Hand Tire Pumps. I have found part numbers, differences between years and barrel sizes but I can't find out how high a Model T or a Model A pump is. I have a 1930 4 door town sedan, I know the correct pump has a stamped ribbed bottom with no logo and the hose comes out the front, I have what I believe to be a...

              Tire pump
              by Poor Boy
              Good morning. I have had this tire pump for forever. (Since I rode a bicycle). I have been told that it is Ford and probably from the 1940’s. It really works well. I am going to carry it in my Model A instead of an original and am just wondering how close to correct it would be. Does anyone happen to know when it would have first gone into production? If it is truly Ford, when could someone...

              Oil Pumps and Pressure
              by Dennis
              A lot of discussion and questions since the first production of the Burtz block has gone around asking which pump to use. Terry described modifying an original Model A pump in the guide for oil pump.

              Some builders have used a Stipe oil pump. The Stipe pump has a lot of volume beings the displacement is much larger built with small block Chevy gears. The Stipe pump is capable of having...

              Ford air pump

              Do the Model T’s air pump have 2 Ford scripts, or were they still found with the early Model As?

              While not 'model a' per se, it is.

              What is it? It appeared in an an ancient article that doc did. The major diameter is 1-3/16"

              Identify my water pump
              by Rumbler
              I bought a 1917 Model T Touring this summer and it has an aftermarket water pump configuration as shown below. This pump leaks water past the shaft and I would like to either fix it or remove and replace with original (no pump) parts. The engine is a 1922 vintage. Can someone identify this water pump and is it worth trying to re-pack the seal to keep it? My inclination is to return to the original...

              Call me crazy, insane, or just plain bonkers, I AM an electronics Wizard, have been since 1975 when I started my second electronics job repairing stereos and CB radios. I have been and always will be a gadget freak, so naturally, I rewired my Model A to 12v neg chassis. Also I likes LEDs
