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!

Audi are teasing a new reveal for the 2013 New York Auto Show which we think in the new A3 saloon. But could it actually be the Q6 instead? We had a preview of the Audi A3 saloon as long ago as the Geneva Motor Show in 2011 and it now looks like Audi are teasing a reveal of the A3 with a boot for the 2013 New York Auto Show next week.

Stephen Becker has been an authorized Shelby dealer since 2007, having sold and delivered 49 cars between 2007 and 2010, according to the suit. Becker has sold various Shelby cars for many years before that, and says he knew Carroll Shelby as early as 1977.

So Aaron Rodgers has 300 passing yards and four touchdowns, and the Packers are killing the Steelers. Or maybe Ben Roethlisburger is keying in on this third Super Bowl title en route to a Pittsburgh smashing. Either way, enthusiasts should keep watching, because Mercedes-Benz has a surprise in store in the fourth quarter.
