That pump is incredible. The craftsmanship is just so good. Quality explore. Any idea of age of these? :cool:
Can't really see much of the pump?
The air blast diesel engine dates from around 1907 so must have been one of the first built at the Hazel Grove Works.



* There's a five cylinder Mirlees Bickerton & Day air blast engine in running condition at Prickwillow Museum near Ely

Don't have any more pictures of the pump, nor did I notice a serial number.
Since I had them, below are a couple of old photos of similar centrifugal pumps from impounding stations on the Liverpool docks.

Thanks for answer, yep I meant to say engine for the pump. I dont really understand how these things work nor their names, Im a woman lol ( non sexist only aimed at me). Wow 1907 they sure knew how to build to last. Thanks tigger.
