Question Peters & Russell parts needed

Anyone know where I can get a diaphragm and set of valves for a Peters and Russell pump in a 67 Tradewind?

Airstream use many of the same components as the marine world.

Good Luck

Jim,

I was able to purchase new diaphrams and a bottom plate for my old PAR 36800
pump from:

Jabsco Service
11-35 Commercial St
Cypress Rd
New Bedford, MA 02741
508-992-8084

Ask for Roger. He was a great help when I called.

P & R 36800 Pump - Keep it or replace it.

I know this thread is old, but hoping to get some experienced advice. I pulled out this pump and it's a unique looking thing, and I'm thinking it can't be efficient. I wouldn't drink water that ran through it without total overhaul/cleaning whathaveyou.

BUT, I can tell this thing has some value to the overall '67 Safari.

I don't want to get rid of this pump unless it goes with the trailer one day. But I don't think this is practical for water output and dc consumption.

Would it be practical to shelve it until money is flowing and then turn it on its head and make an auxillary 'draw pump". There are often icy cold fresh water springs coming off the mountains...could just make a intake pump, keep it for aesthetic/preservation value.

Thanks for your thoughts.

Ty

What you have is a PAR water pump that may very well be original to your coach. The last time that I checked, rebuild kits were still available. While many RV dealers won't recognize the pump, a marine dealer will readily recognize the pump and will likely be a better source of replacement parts. I have made it a practice to keep a rebuild kit as well as a small replacement parts kit in each of my coaches. The Airstream Service Center that performs most of my repairs has been able to source the rebuild kits as well as maintenance parts for me. Rebuilding and maintenance of the pump is comparatively simple even for someone with limited do-it-yourself inclination as am I. I don't have any reservations about using water pumped through my PAR as it is fully exposed to the sanitizing solution each time I santize my fresh water system.

Good luck with your coach!

Kevin
