Vintage Perko Bronze Manual Bilge Pump on 2040-parts.com
Tracys Landing, Maryland, United States
This was on a 1936 Kings Cruiser so is likely of that era and has been stored since 70s.
Barrel is 18" so stroke is about 16", looks like the barrel is 2 1/2" ID. The threads are indented at a couple of places at the tip of the barrel top but with some care it threaded on. Also has about a 1" longitudinal crack in the barrel near the top that oddly doesn't go into the threads, see pics - if soldered on the inside it would not show and would not interfere with the piston. 1.5" female discharge, 1.25" male intake threads. Needs foot valve leather replaced but the flapper is with the unit, see pic. Don't know about the piston seal but likely it needs replacing too. No dents etc in the barrel except as described. 26.5" from top of handle. I believe it is all bronze or brass but the barrel may be copper.
With some work it would make a lovely pump for a period boat! Better in your boat than my garage!

"The soul of our designing is in Italy," said Silvio Petro Angori, CEO of Italian design house Pininfarina S.p.A. "We will do all styling in Italy – we will not do that in China." But in order to cater to the growing number of contracts from Chinese automakers, Pininfarina will soon begin engineering and product development in China with a center in Shanghai's suburb of Anting. Pininfarina has been working with Chinese automakers since 1996.
