Original Water Pump

Spring Cleaning!
I have the original water pump from my '72 Ambassador. I replaced it with a new one due to a leak around the piston diaphram. The other parts are fine, (motor, pressure switch, etc.). I just hate to just throw it out. Maybe someone wants it? Parts are parts. If so, send me an email. You can have it for $20 to cover shipping ($11), and $9 for my time and trouble to the U.S.P.S.

A couple of pics..........

What? No purists out there?

Well, I guess there's no authentic restoration people left out there. Or no call for a museum piece! I can't say I blame you! Off to the garbage it goes..........

That was a nice gesture on your part, Tamis. But the old PAR pumps are LOUD and unseen. The sane purists don't even re-install them because the water pump is not on the tour. And they are LOUD.

Karma for your effort, though.

I use my old PAR pump for pumping out kidde pools and science experiments. It's a great general purpose pump to have around for some things.

It is kinda LOUD though...

Wow those old PAR pumps aren't that loud. And the chuga-chuga-chug is much better than those damned whiney modern pumps. You know that pump is still in production and costs almost $400 new. The rebuild kit is well worth it.

That being said I can't say I need it as mine works well and I have a stand by re-build kit ready if I need it.

Don't trash it PLEASE! Put it up as "used-rebuildable" on e-bay at least. Those are great pumps!

The new ones are LOUD too.

There's a reason why Airstream quit using them.

So, Tom, what is the best water pump? Aside from using municipal water pressure?

Water Pump Update

First, Thanks Tom W.

Second, That pump WAS noisy. I replaced it with a Flo-Jet, I could barely hear it. Wouldn't make much of a boat anchor either.

Third, Some one got in touch with me, and wants it. It goes in the mail tomorrow, instead of the garbage. I love to recycle good junk, and see it live on.

My PAR pump was replaced with a FloJet which was used until I decided my wife does a fine job of toting all the water we need.
