I acquired this pump that was on a tank that it clearly wasn't original to. I've taken it apart in hopes of cleaning it up and maybe using it if possible someday. There are no names cast into it nor nameplates. Thank you for your time.

Looks like a Brunner
by: Roger

It's definitely a refrigerant compressor, as it has the sealed crankcase, a mechanical oil seal, no cooling blades on the flywheel, and plenty of head bolts.

Yes Doug, the quick connect was already on it when I got it. Someone had it setting on an old Sanborn mfg tank, (distributed by Mid States), which its not original to.

I'll add more pics in another thread asap. They also had a screw and bolt going out the other end of the head, opposite of the quick connect, to seal up that hole. Cobbled up mess, but it has to be useful for something.

pump ID
by: Doug in s.d.ca

Dunno, but was that male quick connect there when you got it?

Suggests possibly it had been used as an air motor, or maybe just to fill an external portable tank.

Or is that how it was connected to the tank it was on?

Start a new post in this same forum and cross reference it to this one. You can then add four more photos.

There is more to this pump that I couldn't add to the original post. The cylinder for the pistons, the second part of the head, and the reeds.

I have added 4 additional pics to see if that helps identify this pump, continued from my previous thread. I set the 2 piece head on top of the cylinder(s). The piece below the head holds the reeds. There are 2 reeds,stacked, with a metal divider. (not pictured) The rear cap also acts as a bearing for the crank.
