  • 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."

          dang
          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...

              Can someone who used a sump pump to flush there engines out for rust tell me what size motor your pump had. If I go this route I want to be sure it will be powerful enough to do the job. Thanks

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

              Oil Pump Question
              by conaway2

              I’m rebuilding 2 oil pumps and have noticed several differences. One pump, which I believe is a newer one (according to the service manual) has 4 ribs on the body, a smaller discharge hole and the shield over the screen is held in place by 2 screws. The other pump has a smooth shaft, a larger discharge hole and no screws holding the shield on. In fact, it;s not clear to me how the shield is held...

              Anybody know what this water pump could be for? I thought maybe an overhead conversion but I can't find any that use a pump like this.
