Apollo milk pump
« on: 12 September, 2011, 01:18:13 pm »
Does anybody know anything about Apollo no2 milk pumps? Who/Where they were made and when? Mine has the fast and loose pulleys between the cast bearing posts and a small brass id plate which reads 'NO746' Cheers

Here is a recent picture of fully restored (not just painted) Apollo piston pump. It has 1/32 oversize gudgeon pin and crank arm retaining bolt plus obligatory leather bucket seals - does anyone know where leather bucket seals are made - I would like to circumvent the middle men.

For large bucket washers you get them from farm
suppliers as windmill spares.
Smaller ones, less than 2" were a problem for me.
I finally got them as old stock at a small hardware shop.

Thanks walky but as i said i want to find the MANUFACTURER - not just another retailer - if pump shops or hardware stores can buy them - so can we
