    Hi, I have just bought this pump, the information on it says Fairbank Morse, Model-40A 17/8, P.L.-260-LBS, the number underneath is P6C46A3.
    Could somebody give some information on this pump such as can I get a manual and parts for it
    Thanks,
    Bernard.

    Hi, the pump is probably made by Godwin, I have a similar pump. They are a simple pump to strip and overhaul, The cup washers are still available from http://www.pfs-uk.co.uk (They advertise in SM from time to time) Bearings are easily obtainable from most stockists. Gaskets can be made from thin jointing or card, from memory there are only half a dozen in the pump. I have been unable to find a manual for this pump, but it is really very easy to work on.

    Hi, thanks for the information, is the pipe you can see on the right hand side of the photo the inlet or outlet.

    Hi again, the pipe on the right should be the outlet.

    Think you will find it is a Fairbanks Morse Typhoon pump and not a Godwin, the air chamber is wrong for a Godwin, and it also has "Fairbanks Morse" cast onto the crank case.

    Easy to see how it could be mistaken for a Godwin OHO though, but it isn't.
